Etihad Airways said to seek $2.6b for Boeing, Airbus jets | GulfNews.com:

"Abu Dhabi-based carrier Etihad Airways PJSC is in talks with banks to raise about $2.6 billion (Dh9.5 billion) in loans to finance aircraft deliveries, according to three people familiar with the matter.
The airline is seeking to raise $2 billion in 12-year loans for 10 Boeing Co. Dreamliner aircraft and about $600 million in financing for two Airbus Group SE A380 superjumbos, said the people, asking not to be identified because the discussions are private.
Separately, low-cost carrier flydubai is in early talks with Emirates NBD PJSC, Noor Bank PJSC and Union National Bank PJSC for a club loan “to supports its infrastructure requirements”, a spokeswoman for the airline said, without detailing how much it plans to raise. The carrier, which currently operates out of Dubai International Airport and Al Maktoum International Airport, is due to move all of its operations to Al Maktoum International this year.
