Etihad Aviation Announces New Structure and Operating Model
Effective immediately, Etihad Aviation Group has announced a new organisational structure and operating model as it embarks on the next phase of its transformation.
The reorganisation is the next step in ensuring the group is fit to prosper as a people-focused business driven by innovation, safety and sustainability, supporting Abu Dhabi’s vision for the future.
Under the new structure, the group will be reorganised into seven business divisions: Operations, Commercial, Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO), Human Resources, Finance, Support Services and Transformation, led by a new executive leadership team reporting to Group Chief Executive Officer, Tony Douglas, who also assumes responsibility for Etihad Airways.
The new structure also sees Abdul Khaliq Saeed become Chief Engineering Officer (MRO); Mark Powers, Chief Financial Officer; Mana Al Mulla, Chief Support Services Officer; and Akram Alami, Chief Transformation Officer.
Etihad’s transformation programme has delivered measurable results to date, with the core airline division recently reporting a 22 per cent improvement in core operating performance for 2017, driven by improved revenues of US$ 6.1 billion and a 7.3 per cent reduction in unit costs.
