ABU DHABI / WAM
Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has announced an enhanced agreement with Citi as its international cash management bank partner.
The new mandate, covering Etihad Airways’ worldwide operations outside the GCC, will enable the airline to leverage Citi’s substantial investment in financial technology to further develop its cash management operations and help reduce costs.
Etihad Airways will now be able to utilise Citi’s Liquidity Management solution to achieve substantial cash optimisation and competitive market rates through automated treasury tools, resulting in significant transaction cost savings.
Citi’s cash management solution rationalises account opening processes and moves the Abu Dhabi-based carrier to a fully automated and centralised account administration, and automated account payable and account receivable management tools to achieve better control and minimise transactional risks.
