“I am excited to take on the Chief Revenue Officer role at a time of such opportunity, as international travel demand kicks into high gear. Etihad Airways has an incredible product, service and team behind it, and I look forward to working together to enable growth and deliver value as we take our airline to new heights,” said De.
