Etihad Airways Reports Surge in Passenger Numbers

Etihad Airways carried more than 1.4 million passengers in March, 43% up on the same month last year, latest figures from the Abu Dhabi-based airline show.

The airline’s load factor (a measure of how full an airline’s planes are), in March, was 84%.

“In March 2024 we saw a 43% year-on-year growth in customer numbers as we continue our growth strategy,” said Antonoaldo Neves, CEO of Etihad Airways. “Our year-to-date passenger figures at 4.3 million are 41% higher than at YTD March 2023.

“Our latest seasonal expansion in routes and frequencies has boosted Etihad’s weekly flights by 34%, rising from 642 in 2023 to 866 in the peak June-July 2024 season, expanding our network and improving global connectivity.

“We continued to announce further growth to our network, including unveiling Al Qassim as our fourth destination in Saudi Arabia, and further frequencies on our European network. These include double-daily flights to Frankfurt and Rome, offering morning and afternoon departures, strengthening our operations with convenient schedules.”
