Etihad Airways Takes Home Top Awards From Airline Economics
• Airline scoops Middle East & Africa Airline of the Year award in recognition of financial transformation and innovation in sustainable financing
 
• Chief Financial Officer, Adam Boukadida, named Middle East & Africa CFO of the Year for second year running
 
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates – Etihad Airways has picked up top honours at the prestigious 2022 Airline Economics Middle East, Africa & Islamic Aviation 100 Awards yesterday evening.
 
The carrier won the coveted Middle East & Africa Airline of the Year Award, with Chief Financial Officer Adam Boukadida receiving the Middle East & Africa CFO of the Year award for the second consecutive year.
 
Now in their 11th year, the Airline Economics awards are held annually to recognise exceptional businesses, individuals and financial transactions in the commercial aviation industry.
 
Mr Boukadida said: “We’re incredibly proud to be named Airline of the Year by Airline Economics, which comes just before our 19th birthday at Etihad Airways. This award goes to our entire organisation and stands as a testament to the success of our transformation, in which every member of the Etihad family played an important role. This is a great way to celebrate our fantastic performance over the first nine months of 2022.”
 
Airline Economics recognised Etihad for its successful turnaround, which led to the airline posting a record-breaking core operating profit of US$ 296 million for H1 2022, with EBITDA improving by more than US$ 600 million to US$ 691 million in the same period. The judges also considered the profit, debt, load figures, RPK, orders and routes for the Airline of the Year award.
 
The CFO of the Year award criteria included financing deals over 12 months, consistency of performance and the deals book for Etihad Airways, as well as feedback on the company and finance function from key regional and global counterparties and strategic partners. 
 
In October 2021, Etihad Airways raised a groundbreaking US$ 1.2 billion loan, the first sustainability-linked loan tied to environmental, social and governance (ESG) targets in global aviation. 
 
The airline has picked up numerous awards for this transaction, including:
 
• Sustainability Finance Overall Deal of the Year at the Airline Economics Aviation 100 Deals of the Year Awards 2022 
 
• ESG Loan Deal of the Year from Bonds, Loans and Sukuk Middle East Awards 2022
 
• Treasury Project of the Year - Sustainability Initiative at the Association of Corporate Treasurers Middle East Treasury Awards 2022
