10 milion passengers
Etihad Airways, has celebrated the milestone of carrying 10 million passengers in 2022.
The 10 millionth passenger and their family were surprised onboard flight EY205 from Mumbai to Abu Dhabi with a cake, complimentary roundtrip tickets, as well as Gold tier membership on Etihad Guest, aircraft models and a polaroid camera to capture the occasion.
Four of the super-jumbos will operate between Abu Dhabi and London, with the first to be reintroduced from summer 2023. The move follows a surge in demand for air travel across the airline’s network and customer feedback for the return of one of the most remarkable commercial flying experiences in the sky.

The Lobby, available to guests in First and Business class, is a serviced lounge and bar area located between the two cabins, featuring leather sofas, refreshments and a large TV with a USB connection.
Etihad is currently preparing the aircraft to fly again, and part of this preparation includes the recruitment and training of A380 teams, including pilots, cabin crew and technical ground staff.
