Airlines to focus on efficiency and sustainability

The future of international travel and tourism came under the spotlight on the global stage at Arabian Travel Market (ATM) 2022.

During a session titled ‘Airlines evolving for the future’ - hosted by John Strickland, Director, JLS Consulting - Adel Abdullah Al Ali, Board Member and Group CEO of Air Arabia, and Tony Douglas, Group CEO of Etihad Aviation Group, shared insights from the pandemic and the strategies they are adopting as the world emerges from the unprecedented challenges of recent years.

Opening the session, Al Ali said: “It has been a difficult two years, but I believe as an industry, we have adapted to meet those challenges. The period also forced the airline industry to reflect on what was working and what wasn’t. In our case, this has led to an even greater focus on efficiency.”

Air Arabia achieved profits across each quarter of 2021, with the codeshare agreement with Etihad Airways playing a major role in its success. The airline has recently launched 44 new routes and is preparing to take two new airlines to the skies this summer - ‘Fly Jinnah’ in Pakistan, and ‘Fly Arna’ in Armenia.

Air Arabia’s 60-strong fleet is expected to triple in the coming months with 120 aircraft on order and a goal of 160-200 planes by the year 2030. Despite this planned expansion, Al Ali remains firmly focused on efficiency. “Our philosophy has been that size doesn’t matter to Air Arabia, profitability does,” he said.
