Etihad Airways Partners With Citi Bank For Efficiency Gains
Etihad Airways has announced an enhanced agreement with Citi as its international cash management bank partner for efficiency gains.
The new mandate, covering Etihad Airways' worldwide operations outside the GCC, will enable the airline to leverage Citi’s substantial investment in financial technology to further develop its cash management operations and help reduce costs.
The Airline will now be able to utilise Citi’s Liquidity Management solution to achieve substantial cash optimisation and competitive market rates through automated treasury tools, resulting in significant transaction cost savings.
The enhanced partnership comes a year after the signing of an innovative Supply Chain Finance agreement between Etihad Airways and Citi enabling the airline to unlock liquidity and pay its suppliers almost immediately through funding provided by the bank.
