Gulf Air has appointed Wael Mattar as senior manager – cargo.
Mattar, who will be based in Bahrain, assumes his new position with extensive experience in airline sales. He previously managed Gulf Air’s stations in the GCC and Egypt, and will transfer his years of knowledge and practice to manage the airline’s cargo department.
In his new capacity, Mattar will work to further strengthen Gulf Air’s cargo growth globally.
He enthused on his new challenge: “I feel proud to be in charge of the cargo department, as the airline has an opportunity to grow its cargo sales and operations, and I am glad the management showed confidence in me to lead this.”
Mattar continued: “I joined the airline in 1995 as a security and safety supervisor, then as a reservation and ticketing agent, and continued to progress through my career to a retail sales manager and a country manager for two stations in the Middle East. Throughout this period, Gulf Air monitored my hard work and helped me develop my skills by experiencing different divisions to let me achieve my dreams in being an aviation professional.”
