 “We would like to extend a special thank you to everyone who played a role in the development of this partnership,” says Pascale Midgley, General Manager of KUSA. “A special note of thanks must go to KUSA member, Heidi Stanley who initiated the contact and saw the potential in such a partnership.”

Etihad Airways, the Abu Dhabi-based national airline of the United Arab Emirates, was named Airline of the Year 2016 by the prestigious US-based aviation industry publication Air Transport World (ATW).
