Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has clinched top honours at the 2015 Aviation 100 Awards, organised by Airline Economics magazine.

The prestigious awards are voted for by the industry and recognise outstanding achievement in the aerospace sector, with Etihad Airways claiming the coveted ‘Airline of the Year’ title.

The awards follow a milestone year, which saw the national flag carrier quantum leap its level of growth, innovation and service. In 2014 the airline launched 10 new routes including three in North America, and injected significant investment into new equity partnerships.

Last year, Etihad Airways also revealed a brand new look with new livery, uniforms and onboard offerings, with its first-of-kind ‘Residence by Etihad’™ concept changing the face of luxury commercial air travel. The Aviation 100 awards join a growing list of acclaimed international accolades won by Etihad Airways – testament to the airline’s unprecedented scale of achievement since launching in 2003.

James Hogan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Airways said: “We are immensely proud that the achievements we made in 2014 have been recognised by our peers in the industry. These awards remind us of the significant progress the airline has made in such a short space of time.
