Etihad Airways recently teamed up with Brand USA, a destination marketing organisation for the United States, to sponsor a Brand USA reception at the exclusive Armani Hotel in Dubai.

At the event, attended by more than 200 senior travel industry professionals and media, Etihad Airways and Brand USA reaffirmed their commitment to forging closer ties and to work closely to find common synergies in their shared goal of promoting travel and tourism between the UAE and the USA.

There are very few nations on earth more diverse than the United States. The sheer beauty of this country, the spirit of optimism and a vibrant culture forged through centuries of hard work, and influences from every corner of the planet, makes it one of the most popular and exciting destinations on Etihad Airways global network, said Shane OHare, Etihad Airways Senior Vice President Marketing. In 2014, we carried 801,465 guests to and from the United States. The country is very much in demand from Emiratis travelling for leisure or on business, and is a vitally important part of our growth plans. Together with our partner airlines, such as Jet Airways, we have also made it easier than ever for travellers from across the Indian subcontinent and other parts of Asia to connect seamlessly through Abu Dhabi onto our services to the USA.

Etihad Airways flies to the key US gateways of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas Fort Worth, New York JFK, and Washington DC. The nations capital is served by the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.

Etihad Airways has signed codeshare partnerships with major US airlines such as American Airlines and JetBlue, and has commercial and marketing agreements in place with leading US hotel chains and car hire companies and through its Etihad Holidays leisure division.

The unique US Preclearance facility in Abu Dhabi has also helped to streamline the travel experience by enabling Etihad Airways customers to clear US immigration and customs in Abu Dhabi. Since its opening in January 2014, the CBP has processed half a million travellers heading to the USA.
