Etihad to go global

ETIHAD Airways said it's looking for purchases in the Americas and China to round out its strategy of buying airline stakes that funnel traffic through its Abu Dhabi hub. "We'll continue to build our equity alliance," Etihad chief executive officer James Hogan said in Berlin.

The airline owns nearly 3pc of Aer Lingus and has been keen to up its stake in the Irish carier.
