Etihad Airways Fast Facts & Figures Q2 2014

  1. 1. 1 OUR BUSINESS Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, was set up by Royal (Amiri) Decree in July 2003. Etihad Airways commenced operations in November 2003, and in 10 years has become one of the fastest growing airlines in the history of commercial aviation. This airline has received a range of awards that reflect its position as one of the world’s leading premium airline brands, including ‘World’s Leading Airline’ at the World Travel Awards for five consecutive years. Its main business is the international air transportation of passengers. Etihad Airways also operates Etihad Cargo, Etihad Holidays, and a global contact centre organisation as part of its commercial group. ETIHAD AIRWAYS STRENGTHENS REVENUE WITH SOARING PASSENGER AND CARGO VOLUMES IN FIRST HALF OF 2014 Etihad Airways has reported double-digit growth in passenger and cargo volumes during the first half of 2014, marking its strongest ever performance for the six-month period, with total revenues increasing to US$3.2 billion. A total of 6.7 million passengers travelled with the airline between January and June this year, almost 22 per cent higher than the 5.5 million passengers in the same period last year. Etihad Cargo also outperformed the global market, carrying 268,713 tonnes of freight and mail during the first half of 2014, up 25 per cent year-on-year, and contributing US$520 million to the airline’s total revenue. It remains on track to become a billion dollar business in 2014. The impressive performance was supported by Etihad Airways’ continued growth in the second quarter of 2014, with 3.5 million passengers and 140,892 tonnes of freight and mail carried over the three-month period, both up 25 per cent on the same period last year. Passenger and cargo volumes were boosted by the fast-paced growth of Etihad Airways’ global route network, with 98 destinations operational by the end of H1 2014, compared to 92 in the same period last year. Organic growth was supported by codeshare and equity alliance partnerships in the first half of 2014, delivering an estimated 1.4 million passengers onto Etihad Airways flights (+28 per cent year-on-year) and contributing revenue of US$471 million, which represented 23 per cent of the airline’s passenger revenue. Etihad Airways’ passenger carrying capacity, measured in Available Seat Kilometres (ASK), was 39.4 billion by the end of H1 2014, an increase of 19 per cent year-on-year. The airline’s fleet also expanded to 102 aircraft, with seven aircraft delivered in the second quarter alone.

These benefits are being generated and investments being made, despite persistent weak profitability and a tax burden which this year is expected to reach US$121 billion (up from US$113 in 2013). Airlines are expected to earn a net profit in 2014 of US$18.0 billion (a slight downgrade from the previous forecast of US$18.7 billion in March), for a net profit margin of 2.4 per cent. This will be up from earnings of US$6.1 billion in 2012 and US$10.6 billion last year. “Aviation is a catalyst for economic growth. Airline revenues now total one per cent of global GDP and the industry will safely transport 3.3 billion people and US$6.8 trillion worth of goods this year. In addition, the jobs and tourism receipts aviation helps generate are major contributors to the global economy. Airlines themselves remain burdened with high taxes and weak profitability.” Tony Tyler, IATA’s Director General and CEO.

  10. 10. 10 OUR COMMUNITY Etihad Airways continues to drive economic growth According to the latest study by leading UK think tank, Oxford Economics, Etihad Airways and its partners continue to play a crucial role in supporting and driving economic growth in the UAE. The airline’s growth and sustained commercial success are good for Abu Dhabi. The economic contributions are classified into four key areas: direct (within Etihad Airways), indirect (suppliers to Etihad Airways), induced (spending of direct and indirect employees), and catalytic (impacts on other industries). The Etihad Airways group contributed a total of US$15.6 billion to Abu Dhabi’s GDP in 2013. This represents 12.8 per cent of the non-oil GDP of the Emirate. The Group supported 180,000 jobs in total. Direct economic contribution: The airline contributed US$3.3 billion to Abu Dhabi’s GDP in 2013. Indirect economic contribution: Etihad Airways made an indirect economic contribution of US$1.7 billion and supported an additional 23,323 jobs in 2013 through fuel purchases, maintenance and repair, airport rental and landing fees, marketing, advertising, IT ventures and communications. Induced economic contribution: An induced GDP contribution of US$1.6 billion and 22,296 additional jobs can be attributed to money spent during 2013 by employees of Etihad Airways and its suppliers. Catalytic economic contribution: Etihad Airways played an important role in improving air links between Abu Dhabi and the rest of the global economy, and the airline’s expanding network was a key factor in encouraging businesses to invest in the Emirate and the UAE. These activities provided a catalytic economic contribution of nearly US$9 billion, and supported nearly 118,484 jobs. Etihad Airways was also a key contributor to the development and growth of tourism in the UAE in 2013, carrying 11.5 million passengers through its hub in Abu Dhabi.

This initiative was made possible with close collaboration between the Abu Dhabi Airports Company, the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority and Etihad Airways. This is not only about reducing fuel consumption, its shorter predictable pathway technique reduces the workload of the controllers, improves safety, reduces traffic separation and increases airport capacity. With pilots requiring training to be qualified to use this technique, this procedure change has taken time to implement, with around 1600 crew requiring specific training. Steady progress has been made over the last two years with over 80 per cent of crew now qualified and 30 per cent of approaches now using this shorter, fuel efficient landing technique. From an environmental perspective the reduction in emissions per landing is significant. Each RNP-AR approach saves between 100 and 200 kilograms of fuel, enabling a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by over 300 kilograms. The full implementation of this technique for all landings will save over 20,000 tonnes of fuel a year, and close to 70,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions.
