Etihad Airways: “The Eurozone remains in trouble and there is still some softness in a number of Middle Eastern markets. However, the wide segmentation of our business is helping to ensure our continued profitable growth. Australia and our major Asian markets are performing strongly. Our routes into China - Beijing, Shanghai and Chengdu - are showing particular potential, which will be further boosted by the strong growth of connecting markets into Africa and our codeshares,” James Hogan, Etihad Airways’ president and chief executive officer.
