Douglas lands Etihad top job

Former Heathrow CEO and current Ministry of Defence executive Tony Douglas has been named CEO of the Etihad Aviation Group. The announcement was made by Etihad group chairman Mohamed Mubarak Fadhel Al Mazrouei.

At the MoD, Douglas, who joins Etihad in January, has served as CEO of the defence equipment and support department, responsible for procuring and supporting all the equipment and services for the British armed forces.

He held senior positions with airport operator BAA, including managing director of the Heathrow Terminal 5 project, group supply chain director and group technical director before he took over as Heathrow CEO.

Previous experience in the UAE includes working as CEO of the Abu Dhabi Airports Company and of the Abu Dhabi Ports Company, where he was responsible for the successful delivery of Khalifa Port.

Douglas said: “Etihad is a force in global aviation that must continue to adapt and evolve on its own and with industry partners as an economic and employment engine for the UAE and the region. 

“With new infrastructure and attractions like the expanded airport, Louvre Abu Dhabi, and Abu Dhabi Global Market, Etihad has a central role in supporting the UAE’s position as a global hub of transportation, tourism, commerce and culture.”
