Etihad ponders hotel brand

20th Apr 2008

Etihad Airways is considering rolling out it’s own hotel brand in the coming years according to reports in the Middle East.The reports suggest that it might take awhile for the airline to decide on a hotel development and management scheme that could help the airline extend its services in accommodation as well.

Gulf News reports James Hogan, chief executive of Etihad saying, “It’s a matter of time before we launch the hotel portfolio. However, right now, we are pretty busy in consolidating our core business, which is aviation.”

The move would mirror the one made by Emirates in the last few years.
