Airbus, manufacturer of the flagship A380 aircraft, presented Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, with the prestigious award for the best ‘Operational Reliability Performance’ in the first year of A380 operations.
The Etihad Airways A380 fleet recorded an extraordinary 99.8 per cent operational reliability between January and December 2015. This is the highest level of reliability ever recorded by an airline in its first year of A380 operations. Etihad Airways’ A380 operational reliability means only 0.2% of flights were delayed, with no cancellations, in the first year.
The award was presented to Jeff Wilkinson, Etihad Airways’ Senior Vice President, Technical, by Didier Lux, Airbus Head of Customer Service, at a ceremony in Toulouse, France.
