Customer Choice Awards – Rising Star Carrier of the Year


chief strategy and planning officer Etihad Airways Kevin Knight


Meaning…
“Voted by the freight forwarding community, the award recognises the extraordinary commitment Etihad Cargo has made to the Asian cargo market over the last year. This includes its continued investment in the opening of new routes, enhancements to service performance, and the strengthening of its relationship with key partners and customers.

“I am delighted to receive this award on behalf of Etihad Cargo in recognition of our commitment and success in working closely with our partners and customers in Asia, ensuring they have access to a flexible operation and an innovative portfolio of products and services that meet their requirements.”

Outlook…

“We have seen strong growth in cargo volumes over the last year and particularly to and from Asia as we continue to leverage the strategic location of our hub in Abu Dhabi to link Asia with the mature markets and emerging economies around the world. Etihad Cargo’s freight business in Asia is growing and earlier this year, the airline increased belly hold capacity to Chengdu and launched a new twice-weekly freighter service to Hanoi to meet growing demand. To-date, the carrier has carried more than 197,466 tons of freight to and from Asia, up 26 per cent on the same period in 2013.”
