History[edit] Etihad Airways
Etihad Airways
was established as the second flag carrier of the United Arab Emirates
United Arab Emirates
in July 2003 by Royal (Amiri) Decree issued by Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who wanted an airline for Abu Dhabi. Darwish Alkhoory, the chief personal pilot for Sheikh Zayed, established the airline. It started with an initial paid-up capital of AED500 million. Services were launched with a ceremonial flight to Al Ain on 5 November 2003. On 12 November 2003, Etihad commenced commercial operations with the launch of services to Beirut. Prior to the establishment of Etihad, Gulf Air
Gulf Air
was the airline which was based at Abu Dhabi International Airport
Abu Dhabi International Airport
and was also co-owned by Bahrain and the Sultanate of Oman. In June 2004, the airline placed an US$8-billion aircraft order for five Boeing
Boeing
777-300ERs and 24 Airbus
Airbus
aircraft, including four Airbus A380s. Its first A380 was delivered in December 2014.[11] The airline announced what was the largest aircraft order in commercial aviation history at the Farnborough Airshow
Farnborough Airshow
in 2008, for up to 205 aircraft—100 firm orders, 55 options and 50 purchase rights.[citation needed] Etihad reported its first full-year net profit in 2011, of US$14 million, in line with the strategic plan announced by CEO James Hogan in 2006.[12] In December 2011, Etihad announced it had taken a 29.21% stake in Air Berlin,[13] Europe's sixth-largest airline, and James Hogan was appointed Vice Chairman. It followed this up with minority stakes in other airlines— Air Seychelles
Air Seychelles
(40%),[14] Aer Lingus
Aer Lingus
(2.987%),[15] Virgin Australia
Virgin Australia
(10%).[16] On 1 August 2013, the President of the company, James Hogan, signed a deal with Aleksandar Vučić, First Deputy Prime Minister of Serbia, in Belgrade, giving Etihad a 49% stake in the Serbian national carrier Jat Airways.[17] The Serbian Government retained 51% of the shares, with the new company being named Air Serbia.[18] In September 2012, the Indian government announced that foreign airlines could take a stake of up to 49% in Indian carriers. On 24 April 2013, Jet Airways
Jet Airways
announced that it was ready to sell a 24% stake in the airline to Etihad for US$379 million. The deal was completed on 12 November 2013.[citation needed] At the 2013 Dubai Airshow, Etihad announced that it was acquiring a 33.3% stake in the Swiss carrier Darwin Airline. Darwin was rebranded as Etihad Regional from March 2014.[19] Etihad sold Darwin in 2017.[20] On 1 August 2014, Etihad agreed to take a 49% stake in the Italian flag carrier Alitalia
Alitalia
for an estimated €560 million. The deal was closed on 8 August 2014.[21] On 1 January 2015, Alitalia-CAI formally passed its operations to Alitalia-SAI, a new entity owned 49% by Etihad and 51% by the Alitalia-CAI shareholders.[22] In May 2016, the management structure was reshuffled, as James Hogan became CEO of the airline's parent company, Etihad Aviation Group. Peter Baumgartner, formerly the airline's Chief Commercial Officer, became Chief Executive Officer of the airline, reporting to Hogan.[23] In May 2017, a week after Alitalia
Alitalia
collapsed into administration, Etihad Aviation Group suddenly announced that CEO James Hogan and CFO James Rigney would leave the group on 1 July 2017. As an interim measure the board of directors appointed Ray Gammell as CEO (previously Chief People and Performance Officer) while searching for a permanent replacement.[24] On January 9, 2018, Etihad Airways appointed Mark Powers as Group CFO, replacing interim Group CFO Ricky Thirion.[25] On 2 July 2017, the United States Department of Homeland Security unbanned Etihad Airways
Etihad Airways
and exempted Etihad Airways
Etihad Airways
from the 2017 electronics ban after the airline enhanced its passenger screening processes.[26] Corporate affairs[edit] Head office[edit]

Head office

Etihad has its head office, in Khalifa City, Abu Dhabi,[27] near Abu Dhabi International Airport.[28] Etihad spent 183.6 million UAE dirhams ($50 million USD) in 2007 to arrange to have its new head office and training center built. The new head office was scheduled to be finished by the end of 2007.[29] Structure[edit] Etihad is governed by a board of directors chaired by Sheikh Hamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nahyan being the vice chairman and operates in terms of its founding legislation and the Article of Association of the Company. The Board consists of seven independent non-executive members and has two sub-committees, being an Executive Committee and an Audit Committee, each with its own charter and chairman. Other members of the board include: Mohammed Mubarak Fadel Al Mazrouei, Ahmed Ali Al Sayegh, Mubarak Hamad Al Muhairi, Hamad Abdullah Al Shamsi, Khalifa Sultan Al Suwaidi and George Cheaib.[30] The airline was led by James Hogan (formerly CEO of Gulf Air) who was appointed as President and Chief Executive Officer on 10 September 2006.

was damaged beyond repair during ground testing at Airbus' facilities at Toulouse Blagnac International Airport in France. During a pre-delivery engine test, multiple safety systems had been disabled by engineers, leading to the non-chocked aircraft accelerating to 31 knots (57 km/h) and colliding with a concrete blast deflection wall. Severe damage was inflicted on the aircraft and nine people on board were injured, four of them seriously. The right wing, tail, and left engines made contact with the ground or wall, leaving the forward section of the aircraft elevated several meters and the cockpit broken off.[88] July 2017 - A flight from Australia
