Posted 30 July 2019 · Add Comment

Gulf Air has appointed Wael Mattar as senior manager cargo based in the airline’s hub in Bahrain.

 

The airline operates an average of 1,000 flights on a weekly basis to approximately 50 destinations and it continues to grow its fleet and network with more passenger seats and cargo space. With this appointment, Mattar will take on the challenge of further strengthening Gulf Air’s cargo growth globally. 

“I feel proud to be assigned in charge of the cargo department as the airline has an opportunity to grow its cargo sales and operations and I am glad the management showed confidence in me to lead this,” said Mattar added at the announcement of his promotion, “I joined the airline in 1995 as a security and safety supervisor, then into a reservation and ticketing agent and continued to progress through my career to a retail sales manager and a country manager for two stations in the Middle East. Throughout this period, Gulf Air monitored my hard work and helped me develop my skills by experiencing different divisions to let me achieve my dreams in being an aviation professional. Our airlines development program along with the encouragement and guidance of my superiors allowed me to work my way up to senior management roles and lead a strategic department like cargo.”
