Etihad Aviation Group (EAG) has appointed Gavin Halliday as managing director of Hala Group, its destination management and global loyalty unit.


At Hala, Halliday will lead EAG’s new global loyalty company which brings together Etihad Guest with the loyalty programmes of other EAG partner airlines. He will also have responsibility for EAG’s destination and conference management organisations, which are critical elements of the company’s plans to grow leisure and business travel to Abu Dhabi and the UAE.

Halliday said: “This is an incredible opportunity. Etihad Airways has been one of the fastest-growing airlines of the last decade and Hala is an engine for further expansion. I look forward to working closely with local travel companies and organisations to bring more business and vacation visitors to Abu Dhabi and the UAE.”
