Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Monday, 26 January 2009

Etihad Airways has appointed Nabil Matarweh Hijazine as the airline’s country manager for Iran.

Based in the capital city Tehran, Mr Hijazine will be responsible for managing the Abu Dhabi-based airline’s commercial operations throughout Iran.

Mr Hijazine has 24 years of experience in commercial aviation, working within the Middle East and Africa for a number of international airlines.

Prior to joining Etihad Airways, Nabil worked as country manager for Qatar Airways in Algiers and, before that, Jordan. He has also held a variety of senior sales positions in Jordan working for Emirates, Air France, British Airways and Royal Jordanian Airways. In addition to his airline experience, Nabil has also managed a leading travel agent in Jordan.

Etihad currently flies three times a week between Abu Dhabi and the Iranian capital of Tehran.

Geert Boven, Etihad Airways’ executive vice president sales and services, said, “Nabil’s extensive commercial experience in the Middle East will be invaluable in his new role as our country manager in Iran. He understands the challenges faced by the aviation industry and the importance of the Iranian market in the global growth plans of Etihad Airways.”

Etihad’s presence in the Iranian market could expand significantly following the recent signing of a memorandum of understanding between the United Arab Emirates General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) and the Civil Aviation Organisation of Islamic Republic of Iran (CAOIRI).

Under the new agreement, Etihad Airways has been granted flying rights to operate 43 additional weekly flights between Abu Dhabi and the five Iranian cities of Tehran, Shiraz, Mashhad, Esfahan and Kish.
