Etihad PartnershipEtihad Airways and the Sydney Opera House today announced the extension of their Major Partnership for a further five years.

The extension will take Etihad Airways well into the Opera House’s Decade of Renewal – launched in its 40th Anniversary year in 2013 to ensure the World Heritage-listed ‘masterpiece of human creativity’ continues to inspire new generations of audiences and visitors.

Under the terms of the new deal, Etihad Airways will continue as the Sydney Opera House’s Major Partner and Opening Nights Presenting Partner. The airline will support Opera House programming by flying guest artists and performing arts companies to Sydney from across its extensive network of 116 international destinations. It will also leverage its investment in Australian tourism – through its partnership with Tourism Australia – to bring more visitors to Sydney and to the Sydney Opera House.
