Etihad Airways has appointed Roy Kinnear as its new Senior Vice President of Etihad Crystal Cargo, replacing Executive Vice President Des Vertannes, who is leaving Etihad to take up a senior role with IATA as Global Head of Cargo.

Mr Kinnear, who will be based at Etihads headquarters in Abu Dhabi, will be responsible for the strategic development and growth of Etihads cargo division, which offers a range of cargo services linked to the airlines expanding route network and fleet.

Mr Kinnear has over 20 years experience in the airline industry. Prior to joining Etihad in December 2006 as Vice President of Revenue Management, he held various senior positions including Head of Network Revenue Management of Gulf Air and General Manager of Revenue Optimisation for British Midland Airways in the UK.

 Etihad Crystal Cargo has grown considerably since it was launched in 2004 and Roys wealth of experience in the airline industry will be crucial to the further development of this specialised division, said James Hogan, Etihad Airways Chief Executive Officer. Roys particular expertise in balancing yield and load factor across the network to optimise revenue will be invaluable as our cargo operation matures and focuses more closely on increasing its contribution to the Etihad group.

Mr Kinnear has served as the Chairman of Sabre Revenue Management Users Committee in addition to serving as a British Midland representative of Star Alliance Revenue Management Committee, and is a board member of Amadeus Gulf.
