2013-11-26 14:26:43
WAM ABU DHABI, 26th November, 2013 (WAM) -- Etihad Airways has appointed Ahmed Ershood Al Shehhi its new General Manager in the Republic of the Seychelles.

Mr. Ahmed, an Emirati replaces Rashed Saif Al Shabi, who has taken up the role of General Manager in Cyprus.

As part of Etihad Airways' alliance with Air Seychelles, Ahmed will also support Air Seychelles' service between Mahe and Abu Dhabi, ensuring that passengers travelling with either airline are provided with a seamless travel experience.

Danny Barranger, Vice President Global Sales, Etihad Airways, said: "Ahmed has extensive experience working in a commercial environment. He also understands the leisure market and has excellent contacts with local industry partners, making him the ideal candidate for this important position." Etihad Airways launched its service between Abu Dhabi and Mahe in the Seychelles in November 2011, and currently operates three flights a week with a two-class Airbus A320 aircraft configured to carry 16 guests in Pearl Business, and 120 guests in Coral Economy class.

This, combined with Air Seychelles' four flights per week service from Mahe to Abu Dhabi, provides passengers with a daily service from the Seychelles to the UAE and beyond on Etihad Airways' fast growing global network.
