Aviation Africa 2015, organized by Arabian Aerospace and African Aerospace magazines, is gathering senior influential industry figures from both Africa and the Middle East. The event will take place May 10-11, 2015 in Dubai, UAE.

Speakers confirmed from African and Middle East airlines already include Girma Wake, Chairman, Rwandair (formerly CEO, Ethiopian Airlines); Adel Ali, Board Member & Group Chief Executive, Air Arabia; and Dr. Nicklas Dahlstrom, Human Factors Manager, Emirates Airline.

There are also senior figures from aviation authorities and associations who include Dr. Elijah Chingosho, Secretary General, Africa Airlines Association – AFRAA; Hussein Dabbas, VP Africa & Middle East, IATA; and Dr. Hamdi Chaouk, Director General, Civil Aviation Lebanon.

Aviation Africa 2015 has been launched to change the perception of African aviation. The panel sessions will deal with the opportunities and issues challenging the growth of the African aviation market, tackling Open Skies, Training, Human Factors, Finance and Business Aviation.

Alan Peaford, the Summit Chairman and show organiser said, “We are delighted that our panel sessions at the summit will include these high level speakers as their participation ensures the debates will benefit from their leadership experience and help to encourage not just discussion but decisions and real progress."

Why Dubai? The world’s global hub is currently the best-placed city to host this event. The home of “open skies.” with more international routes to Africa than Africa carriers themselves plus visa regulations that make it easier for Pan-African nationals to meet in one place.

The 2-day summit will also feature an associated exhibition with up to 40 companies who currently include UAS International Trip Support as Gold Sponsor, African Open Sky & Atlantic FuelEx as Silver sponsors, NEXUS & Wyvern Consulting as Gala Reception sponsors, Hadid Flight Services as Bag sponsor and exhibiting companies such as Ethiopian Airlines – the Official Carrier, Safat Aviation Group, Boeing, and Jeppesen.

KHALIFA CITY, United Arab Emirates - Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, has appointed Fatima Al-Kharousi as the first Emirati female airport manager.

Based in Nagoya, Japan, she will be responsible for overseeing the airline's operations at Chubu Centrair International Airport and the smooth operation of its daily service between Abu Dhabi and Nagoya.

Fatima joined Etihad Airways in 2009 as part of the graduate management program, a structured 18-month training initiative that develops talented Emiratis who are selected and trained in all aspects of airline operations.

After successfully completing the program, Fatima spent two years building up her experience of airport operations and was posted as airport duty manager to a number of outstations across the airline's fast growing global network, including London, Manchester, and Singapore.

Fatima was then appointed as assistant airport manager in Australia where she was responsible for overseeing the smooth operations at Sydney International Airport.

Chris Youlten, Etihad Airways' SVP, airport operations, said: "Fatima has demonstrated a strong understanding of airport operations and has a track record of performing consistently and to the highest standards. We are confident that she is the ideal candidate to lead our operations."

As part of developing the UAE national work force and offering them the opportunity to gain international working experience, Etihad Airways recently deployed more than 190 UAE nationals to various positions at the airline's offices and airport destinations across the Middle East, Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas.

Commenting on her appointment, Fatima said:" I am excited to take on this new and challenging role to act as the focal point for all Etihad Airways' operations in Nagoya."

Ray Gammell, chief people and performance officer, said: "As the national airline of the UAE, we are committed to growing and developing a highly qualified cadre of UAE nationals - both female and male."
