Etihad’s Chief Executive James Hogan said: “We are delighted to have been named Airline of the Year by Arabian Business. 2011 has been an exciting year for Etihad Airways. Not only have we launched seven new routes – Chengdu, Nairobi, the Seychelles, the Maldives, Bangalore, Dusseldorf and Shanghai – but we have also increased frequencies across our network and we remain on track to break even.
