Etihad Airways has joined an elite club of airlines in the Middle East, reporting its first ever annual profit. Outside standouts such as Emirates, few of the region’s state-owned carriers have been able to report regular profits. Indeed, state-owned carriers in the region typically report heavy losses, when their results are made public at all.

In 2011 representatives from the Barcelona Air Route Development Committe visited the airline in the framework of an institutional roadshow around the Middle East countries. The meeting was very profitable and it enhanced the relationship between both entities.
