Etihad Airways has undertaken some key changes and initiated new partnerships.
As per recent development, under the chairmanship of HE Mohamed Mubarak Al Mazrouei, the new management structure for the Etihad Aviation Group PJSC, which was formally established by Abu Dhabi Law No 6 of 2014 will be implemented.
Etihad Aviation Group Chairman, Al Mazrouei said: “Etihad Airways has been steadily evolving into the Etihad Aviation Group for a number of years. This has been driven by the formation of new companies, including Etihad Airways Engineering, Etihad Global Cargo Management Company, the Global Loyalty Company, Hala Abu Dhabi, and Etihad Airport Services.”
James Hogan, who has served as Etihad Airways president and chief executive officer since September 2006, has been appointed Etihad Aviation Group president and chief executive officer. Peter Baumgartner will take on the new position and oversee day-to-day running of Etihad Airways.
The key Etihad Aviation Group functions will be led by James Rigney as group chief financial officer, Kevin Knight as group chief strategy and planning officer, Ray Gammell as group chief people and performance officer, and Robert Webb as group chief Information and Technology officer. These areas will provide leadership, governance and strategic direction in their expert areas across all companies in the Etihad Aviation Group.
Subsequently, the airline has also partnered with MTT to launch a mobile application for the iPhone. The app enables guests to organise and manage their journey with ease as the airline continues to adopt innovative technology. The Etihad Airways mobile app provides comprehensive trip management capabilities. Guests can pay for their tickets by scanning their credit card and can also check in for their flight by using their mobile phone.
