IATA appoints Hussein Dabbas

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has appointed Hussein Dabbas as regional vice president for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), based in Amman, Jordan, with due effect from June 1, 2012.

Dabbas has served as president and CEO of Royal Jordanian since 2009. That was the culmination of a career at the carrier that spanned over three decades during which Dabbas held various positions in the airline’s commercial departments.
Dabbas takes over from Majdi Sabri, who will retire from IATA after the leading the association in the MENA region since 2001.
“I welcome Hussein to IATA. His decades of aviation experience will help IATA to deliver its many important global programmes in the fast growing MENA region. I also thank Majdi for his many years of dedicated service to IATA and the aviation industry of the region,” said CEO, IATA, Tony Tyler.
“I am excited to be joining IATA and look forward to contributing to the development of aviation in the MENA region. Aviation is a critical component of the region’s development and exhibits a tremendous potential for growth,” added Dabbas.
“In the Middle East alone, the aviation sector currently supports 2.7 million jobs and $129 billion in economic activity. I look forward to leading IATA’s efforts regionally to ensure that aviation can continue to be an economic catalyst by growing safely, securely and sustainably.”
IATA’s mission is to represent, lead and serve the airline industry. IATA brings together some 240 member airlines and flights by these airlines account for 84 per cent of all international scheduled air traffic. 
IATA has 28 member airlines across the MENA region, including some of the fastest growing airlines in the world. From its Amman regional office, IATA supports the MENA region with access to the full range of IATA’s activities, programmes and services.
This includes flagship programmes such as the IATA Operational Safety Audit, Simplifying the Business, and Checkpoint of the Future as well as the full range of IATA’s Industry Settlement Systems.
