Mohamed Mubarak Fadhel Al Mazrouei, Chairman of the Board of Etihad Aviation Group, said, “We are delighted to have Abdul Khaliq as CEO of Etihad Airways Engineering. The organisation has become a critical enabler for UAE commercial aviation and Abu Dhabi’s role as a global aviation hub over the past 25 years. Under his leadership, we will maintain our focus on innovation and business performance.”

Ray Gammell, Interim Group CEO of Etihad Aviation Group, said: “We are very happy to have Abdul Khaliq leading the world-class team at Etihad Airways Engineering. The business enables Etihad Airways and many global airlines to keep their fleets flying. Abdul Khaliq’s MRO experience, knowledge of the regional aviation market and proven track record makes him the clear choice to operate and grow this critical part of the Etihad Aviation Group.”
