The Supreme Council for Financial and Economic Affairs has transferred full ownership of Etihad Aviation Group (EAG) to ADQ, an Abu Dhabi-based investment and holding company.

The transfer of EAG complements ADQ’s efforts to realise Abu Dhabi’s vision to strengthen the emirate’s position as a global aviation hub  delivering integrated and competitive aviation services.

Etihad Airways is a global leader in air travel, recognised for its best-in-class service and sustainable travel experience, connecting to 63 destinations in 42 countries.

Earlier this year, EAG’s ancillary businesses were transitioned into ADQ to create a new integrated aviation support services company, ushering in a new wave of growth for the sector. EAG will continue its aspiration to be a leading global airline that delivers a best-in-class customer experience, unrivalled services and care for its guests, as part of ADQ’s aviation portfolio.
