Etihad airways appoints manager for Seychelles
2013-08-29 14:59:10
WAM ABU DHABI, 29th August, 2013 (WAM) -- Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, has appointed Salem Al Mesmari as its new Airport Manager in the Republic of the Seychelles.

Based in the Seychelles capital, Mahe, Mr. Al Mesmari is responsible for overseeing the airline's operations at Seychelles International Airport and the smooth operation of its three times a week service between the Seychelles and Abu Dhabi.

As part of Etihad's alliance with Air Seychelles, Salem and his colleagues work closely with the Air Seychelles team in Mahe, providing support and assistance to their operations, ensuring that guests travelling with either airline are provided with the highest levels of service.

Mr. Al Mesmari joined Etihad Airways in 2008 under the Graduate Management Development Programme, spending two years working in various roles at the airline's headquarters, and then in operations at its hub at Abu Dhabi International Airport. He also built up his experience of airport operations with postings to a number of outstations across the airline's fast growing global network, including Casablanca, Almaty, Alexandria, Doha and Male, in the Maldives.

Chris Youlten, Vice President, Network Operations, said, "Salem has a strong understanding of airport operations which will serve Etihad Airways well in the Seychelles. His ability to perform consistently and to the highest standards expected by the airline across a truly diverse range of airports over the past two years ensures that Salem is ideally positioned for his new role as Airport Manager in Mahe.

Etihad Airways launched its Abu Dhabi - Mahe service in November 2011, and currently operates a two-class Airbus A320 aircraft configured to carry 16 guests in Pearl Business, and 120 guests in Coral Economy class.

Mr. Mesmari replaces Rashed Saif Al Shabi, who is now overseeing the airline's operations in Cyprus.
