Dr Khalfan Al Shueili, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Oman Aviation Services (OAS), has been elected to the Board of The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA).
Dr Al Shueili is leading OAS, based at Muscat Airport, Oman, from the last 15 months. Previously, he spent more than seven years leading readiness operations for the Oman Airports Management Company during its expansion period.
Air cargo in the Sultanate of Oman witnessed significant growth during the period from 2013 to 2018, during which volumes almost doubled.
“TIACA brings together all sectors of the cargo supply chain and the addition of OAS means we now have more airport and handling expertise as part of our Board from this important growing region,” said Sebastiaan Scholte, Chairman of TIACA and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Jan de Rijk Logistics.
“We look forward to working together as we look to develop the seminar programme for our Executive Summit.”
OAS signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with TIACA last year, pledging to work together with the Association to promote air cargo growth in the Middle East.
“This step will allow us to explore new horizons of regional and global partnership, as TIACA is considered to be a very comprehensive umbrella of international cargo companies,” said Al Shueili.
“This is in line with the outlook and vision for the future development of the air cargo sector in the Sultanate of Oman, which is flourishing in terms of new facilities and volume growth.”
