There was much to celebrate when ABIE corporate member Robert Chad, General Manager of Etihad, hosted a party on Tuesday, June 2nd high on a terrace overlooking the Champs Elysees.

Not only was the Abu Dhabi based airline celebrating 10 years of operating out of Paris, but in February the company won the coveted title Airline of the Year 2016.

The award for overall excellence and innovation was given by the US-based aviation industry magazine Aviation Industry World, and Etihad was chosen from 100 other airlines.

This follows a winning streak in 2015 when Etihad picked up seven different awards for excellence.
