Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has appointed 34 Emirati employees to key roles across the airline’s global network.

The UAE Nationals were appointed as Airport and Airport Duty Managers in 25 destinations across Europe, the United States, Middle East, South East Asia and the Pacific region.

Most of these appointments are part of the Airport Operations Management Program, a structured three-year training initiative that develops talented Emiratis who are carefully selected and trained in all aspects of airport operations.

The program is underpinned by a recognized International Air Transport Association Diploma aimed at elevating the aviation knowledge and experience of the airport graduate managers and, as a result, helping them build their careers in the aviation industry.
