Etihad Airways carried more than 5.7 million passengers in the first four months of 2024, new figures show. Over 1.4 million people were carried by the airline in April alone.

In a stetement, CEO of Etihad Airways, Antonoaldo Neves said: “In April 2024 we experienced 39 per cent year-on-year growth in customers, further underlining our positive growth trajectory and contributing to a four per cent boost in load factor, despite a considerable increase in capacity against the same period in 2023.

“Our year-to-date passenger figures are at 5.7 million, 41 per cent higher than the same period last year.
“These figures come on the back of robust first-quarter 2024 financial results with Q1 earnings equivalent to our total net income for the entire financial year 2023, and underline our ongoing commitment to resilience, customer service, and efficiency.
“We continue to grow our network and our frequency to match customer demand, and in April we successfully reintroduced our much-loved A380 onto our New York route while announcing plans to add it to our flights to Paris from November 1.”

The carrier flies to 68 destinations globally with a fleet of 89 aircraft.
