  • Etihad Airways Airbus A320-200 plane is seen at the National Airport Minsk Belarus and an Emirates Airbus A380-800 plane is seen at Nice International Airport in Nice France

Etihad made a similar statement denying the report.

News reports about a potential merger between the two UAE-based airlines have surfaced over the a year ago and periodically in the past decade, sparking speculation over such a move, which would create the world's biggest airline by passenger traffic. However, Emirates chairman Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed al-Maktoum said in May there were no merger talks. Emirates is far larger than Etihad.

Etihad has been struggling to turn a profit and has been shrinking its operations following a poorly timed alliance with a number of generally ailing foreign operators combined with a slump in the price of oil leading to a drop in travel in crude-based economies.

Rumours about a potential merger between the two carriers have been circulation for a few years now. Fitch Ratings last month said it expected Etihad to continue losing money through 2022.

The cargo and logistics arm of Middle East carrier Etihad Airways will redeploy its Boeing 777 freighter capacity on "core trade lanes" to connect its Abu Dhabi hub to selected global markets in Asia, Europe and the US. Emirates also owns the world's biggest fleet of Airbus A380 superjumbos, according to Bloomberg.

The formation of a merged airline would surpass current industry No. 1 American, based on the most recent annual traffic figures from the International Air Transport Association.
