Commenting on the airline's involvement with the conference, he said, 'The growth of Etihad Airways over the past year has significantly boosted the number of passengers traveling through Abu Dhabi airport. As a central hub between some of the world's key destinations, Abu Dhabi is the gateway between East and West. Etihad Airways plays an important role in bringing these worlds together.' He continued, 'To accommodate growth in passenger numbers and traffic through Abu Dhabi airport, we are exploring ambitious plans for airport expansion.' The conference provides key industry players with the opportunity to meet global suppliers who offer solutions for airport projects, providing the ideal location for the occasion to exchange ideas. The format of the event is much more exclusive than any other airport event in the world as it is limited to only 50 solution providers, providing participants with unparalleled opportunities. Moreover it will enable Etihad Airways to build on its relations with suppliers, consultants and contractors who have played a key role in transforming Etihad into an elite global airline and whose support and expertise are vital for the airline's future growth. Etihad Airways, although a new arrival, already flies to 16 destinations in the Middle East, Europe and Asia. The growing network now serves Amman, Bahrain, Bangkok, Beirut, Cairo, Colombo, Damascus, Dammam, Geneva, Karachi, London (Heathrow), London (Gatwick), Mumbai, Munich, New Delhi and Riyadh. In addition to Etihad's rapidly expanding international routes, the airline has also created Etihad Holidays in record time. Launched in May 2004, Etihad Holidays offers an array of over 170 hotels in more than 35 exciting holiday destinations in 14 countries - from vibrant bustling cities and picturesque, romantic beach resorts to cultural breaks and world-renowned hotels. Etihad's focus is on doing things differently - reinventing the way an airline works, with the emphasis very much on creating new standards in hospitality. Etihad refers to passengers as 'guests' and has three 'guest zones' - Diamond, Pearl and Coral - rather than classes. These do not correspond directly to first, business and economy classes. Each zone provides a premium service, with quality and undivided attention emphasized.
H.E. Dr. Sheikh Ahmed Bin Seif Al Nahyan, Chairman of Civil Aviation Department in Abu Dhabi and Chairman of Etihad Airways will be providing the official keynote address at the opening ceremony on April 19.
