Etihad Airways Soars in Q1 2024, Recording Strong Profit Growth

Etihad Airways took flight in the first quarter of 2024, reporting a significant boost in profits compared to last year. This positive performance marks a promising start to the year for the Abu Dhabi-based airline. The company announced a hefty profit after tax of AED 526 million (USD 143 million), a substantial jump from the AED 59 million (USD 16 million) reported in Q1 2023. This impressive turnaround reflects a multifaceted strategy focused on network expansion and passenger growth.


Etihad's revenue surged by AED 987 million (USD 269 million) to reach AED 5,739 million (USD 1,563 million) in Q1 2024. This growth is attributed to an increase in both network capacity and passenger numbers. The airline successfully transported 4.2 million passengers during the quarter, representing a remarkable 41% rise year-on-year.


The company's financial performance wasn't solely driven by passenger traffic. Etihad also credits reduced net finance costs for contributing to their profit surge. This demonstrates their commitment to streamlining operations and optimizing financial management. Expressing optimism about the future, Etihad's Chief Executive Officer, Antonoaldo Neves, highlighted that their Q1 earnings are equivalent to their entire net income for the entirety of 2023.

It demonstrates a potential recovery from the challenges posed by the pandemic and suggests a return to profitability for airlines that have adapted and strategically expanded their reach.
