Maher Salman Al Musallam has resigned as CEO of Gulf Air.

Al Musallam (pictured right) joined Gulf Air as deputy chief executive officer and has been at the helm of the airline, as acting chief executive officer, since December 2012. He was given the permanent post as CEO just over a year ago in May.
Gulf Air credited Al Musallam along with the executive management team, with spearheadeding the national carrier’s 2013 restructuring strategy to reduce
the airline’s annual losses.
A year ago H.E. Shaikh Khalid bin Abdulla Al Khalifa, deputy Prime Minister and the then chairman of Gulf Air board, reported that those losses had been slashed by 88%.
A new board was appointed on May 14 with tourism minister, Zayed Bin Rashid Alzayani, taking over the role as chairman of the board
Alzayani said: “On behalf of Gulf Air’s board of directors and the airline’s executive management team and workforce, I extend my sincerest thanks to Mr Al Musallam for his invaluable contributions and achievements delivered during his tenure with the airline. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”
