Etihad Airways may cancel billions of orders from Airbus and Boeing


The CEO of “Etihad Airways” in Abu Dhabi said today, Wednesday, that the company may cancel orders to buy billions of dollars of aircraft from Airbus and Boeing, attributing this to the uncertainty about delivery dates and the sector’s recovery from the impact of the pandemic.

“Manufacturers can’t confirm their delivery dates and you have a market where you don’t know when they will recover,” Tony Douglas said of the Airbus A320neo and Boeing 777X that the airline has ordered nearly a decade ago.

Etihad Airways will continue to receive Airbus A350-1000 and Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which Douglas said would become the backbone of a fleet that would be reduced to 65 aircraft.
