(Sharecast News) - Abu Dhabi's Etihad Airways announced on Wednesday it would no longer operate Boeing 777-300ER jets after 2021, its chief executive said.

The move comes was part of its plan to become a smaller airline and return profitability in 2023.

Etihad accelerated its five-year restructuring plan during the pandemic which had crippled the entire air travel industry.

"You will see of us a very focused, a very disciplined operating model which is heavily built around the fleet of the (Boeing) 787 Dreamliner and (Airbus) A350-1000," CEO Tony Douglas told the online World Aviation Festival.

Etihad operated 19 777s, some of which it had recently converted to cargo flights in response to increased demand.
