Commenting on the appointments, Abdulla Mohamed Shadid, Managing Director Cargo and Logistics Services at Etihad Aviation Group, said: “Today Etihad is proud to see these talented Emirati individuals take up leadership positions within Etihad Cargo. Since our inception 15 years ago, Etihad Cargo has grown rapidly to cement its place as a top 20 global air cargo carrier. Our Global Customer program, our loyalty scheme and our UAE home market have all been key catalysts for this growth, and today’s key Emirati appointments are a further signal of our commitment to better serve these segments, while developing our top Emirati talents into key leadership positions”.
The renewed UAE Commercial organisation will play a key role in fostering closer working relationships with the local forwarder community as well as the key global forwarders with a UAE presence, and providing a seamless and more efficient commercial approach for the local perishables traders such as flowers and meat importers, as well as key Government-affiliated industrial and services institutions.
In the coming weeks, Etihad Cargo will also be announcing further enhancements and updates to its Global Customer and Loyalty programs led by Haleema.
“I would like to wish the team the best of luck in their new responsibilities”, added Shadid. “With the full backing and support of the senior leadership at the Etihad Aviation Group, we are confident that they will fulfill our ambition to better serve our local and global cargo customers, and further demonstrate that the Air Cargo industry is an ideal platform for nurturing Emirati talent.”
