Gulf Air chief re-elected to Iata board
Manama, June 16, 2010
Gulf Air’s chief executive Samer Majali has been re-elected for a second term as a member of the board of International Air Transport Association (Iata), the global airline industry’s representative body.
His appointment secures his position on the board of the governors until 2012. He will be joining thirty CEOs elected from three hundred airlines around the world.
In his capacity as a member of the board, Majali will represent the interests of the association and its member airlines, especially in the region.
“Year 2009 and the first quarter of 2010 have been challenging periods for the aviation industry, reinforcing the need for tighter stakeholder collaboration to drive efficiencies and accelerate recovery. This can only be done through setting new standards across the global airline industry, a process that is actively driven by Iata,” said Samer Majali.-TradeArabia News Service
