Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways Chief Commercial Officer, said, Etihad Guest is targeting another half a million members over the next two years, and with the continued enhancements to our programme and the provision of more and more unique benefits particularly for our top tier members we are confident we will reach this target.
