“Etihad Airways has reported an increase in passengers and capacity in its 2016 review, despite a turbulent year for the Abu Dhabi-based airline.

The airline said it delivered “another year of sustained growth”, carrying 18.5 million people in 2016 – up six percent on 2015.

Passenger traffic, measured by revenue passenger kilometres (RPKM), rose by eight percent, Etihad said, while capacity, measured in available seat kilometres (ASKM), grew by nine percent. The average load factor held steady at 79 percent.

During the year, Etihad Airways operated more than 109,000 scheduled passenger and cargo flights spanning around 446 million kilometres and 112 destinations.”
