Posted 13 September 2018 · Add Comment

The Executive Committee of the Arab Air Carriers Organization (AACO) held its 82nd meeting in Amman today, hosted by Royal Jordanian Airline.

 

The meeting, held at Intercontinental Hotel, was headed by Saleh Bin Nasser Al Jasser, Director General of Saudi Arabian Airlines and Chairman of AACO Executive Committee. Participating were RJ President/CEO Stefan Pichler, AACO’s Secretary General Abdul Wahab Teffaha, the CEOs of eight Arab airlines that are members of the Executive Committee.

The attendees tackled several strategic issues and the development of some joint projects among AACO members. The committee also discussed internal issues in preparation of AACO’s 51st Annual General Meeting that will be held between Nov. 5 and 7, 2018.

Pichler said RJ is pleased to host the chief executives of the Arab carriers, and underlined the significance of these meetings that gather the Arab airlines under one umbrella to find the best solutions that face the air transport industry in the region.

Royal Jordanian has been an AACO member since 1965, just two years after the airline was established.   

Teffaha thanked RJ for hosting the event. He said that one of the tasks of the Executive Committee is to supervise the work of the organization and discuss the main issues that concern the Arab carriers in various fields. Such issues include the joint projects among members, being managed by AACO, aeropolitical matters in the world and the region and AACO’s priorities in the coming period.   

The executive committee is the second highest AACO authority after the AGM; it consists of nine members from among boards of directors or chief executives of Arab airlines. 

AACO is made up of 33 Arab airlines that operate over 1,400 aircraft of an average age of 7 years, half of the age of other global fleets.
