Posted 4 May 2017 · Add Comment

Etihad Airways has announced new roles and responsibilities for four of its most senior UAE nationals.

Ahmed Al Qubaisi, who currently holds the position of Vice President Aero Political and Industry Affairs, will be promoted to Senior Vice President and take on responsibility for International Affairs and for Environmental Affairs. Ahmed joined Etihad Airways in 2015 as Vice President Alliances and Partnerships, before being promoted to his current role in 2016.

Hareb Al Muhairy is to become Senior Vice President, UAE and GCC Sales, responsible for driving sales revenues in the airline’s priority markets. He moves from his current position in Corporate and International Affairs.

Amina Taher has been promoted to Vice President, Corporate Affairs, and will be responsible for leading corporate communications strategy for Etihad Aviation Group (EAG).  With this promotion, she becomes one of the group’s most senior female executives.

Finally, responsibility for the airline’s corporate social responsibility strategy will be moved under Dr. Nadia Bastaki, Vice President Medical Services. Dr. Nadia joined the Medical Centre at Etihad Airways in 2007 and is a leading Aviation Medical specialist in the region.  Under her leadership the Etihad Medical Centre has become adopted by the industry as best-in-class and the addition of corporate social responsibility is a natural extension of her Medical and Wellbeing portfolio.

Mohamed Mubarak Fadhel Al Mazrouei, chairman of the Board of the Etihad Aviation Group, said: “Our business is committed to developing career opportunities for advancing UAE nationals. These four highly-talented leaders have all seized those opportunities to develop careers as senior executives within one of the UAE’s largest businesses.”
