Etihad unveils special livery to mark 20th anniversary 


Etihad Airways unveiled on June 25, 2024, a new special livery to mark the 20th anniversary of the airline, which officially launched in November 2003. 

The design features an intricate line-style pattern celebrating different elements representative of Abu Dhabi, the carrier’s home emirate. 

The livery has been applied to one of the new A321neo aircraft that have recently joined Etihad’s fleet. 

Etihad has also published a video on social media showing this livery’s painting process.

Antonoaldo Neves, Etihad’s Chief Executive Officer, said the livery “reflects the journey we have been on, and it also sets the tone for our future as we give flight to our ambition, to be the airline that everyone wants to fly.”  

In May 2024, Etihad received its first A321neo aircraft, the first of six that previously used to operate for Vietnamese carrier Bamboo Airways and expected to arrive before the end of 2024.  

Etihad ordered 26 A321neo aircraft directly with Airbus in 2013. However, the order has been deferred several times.  

During the new livery presentation, John Wright, Etihad’s Chief Operations and Guest Officer, mentioned that the carrier is preparing to welcome an additional 20 aircraft in 2025, although he did not provide the exact makeup of the new fleet arrivals.
