Etihad Airways Fleet
Etihad Airways operates a fleet of 86 in-service aircraft, including 15 jets listed as parked or in storage.
The Boeing 787-9 is the most essential fleet type when measured by active units, with 30 in-service. 12 A320-200s follow this in operation. However, there are two aircraft in storage.
The carrier also flies 10 787-10s as part of its extended commitment to the Dreamliner, which is hugely important to its long-haul widebody operations.
As part of widebody flying, the airline flies nine 777-300ERS, which is deployed worldwide on long-haul routes.
Interestingly, the airline has returned its A380s to service to address growing demand. Thus far, four A380s have been returned to service with the initial intent to be deployed towards only London Heathrow.
However, recently, the carrier said it would move away from just this plan with deployment towards New York JFK starting April 22, 2024.
