Etihad restructures aircraft orders

Etihad Airways has restructured planned aircraft orders from both Airbus and Boeing. In its statement, Etihad said that it will take delivery of five Airbus A350-1000, 26 Airbus A321neos and six Boeing 777-9 aircraft. The airline said it also will continue to accept its 787 orders. Its remaining orders will be affected by “rescheduling, restructuring or reduction”.

Etihad hopes this restructuring of its orderbook will “enable the airline to further progress its transformation and adjust to its new operating model” and can now “concentrate on the phased introduction of new aircraft types, enabling an efficient rationalization of its fleet and building a network that connects Abu Dhabi to the world”.
