Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has appointed Vincent Frascogna as Manager Western Australia, based in Perth.
The appointment comes as the airline prepares for the launch of
daily flights between Abu Dhabi and Perth on July 15, 2014.
Vincent takes on the role after five years based in Etihad
Airways’ headquarters in Abu Dhabi - four of which have seen him managing the
airline’s sales operations as Head of Commercial Development. This role
included responsibility for the commercial integration of new partnerships and
worldwide roll-out of the airline’s SME loyalty scheme BusinessConnect.
Prior to this, Vincent managed the Abu Dhabi-based airline’s
Global Contact Centres and UAE retail operations after nine years in commercial
roles at British Airways.
Etihad Airways’ Chief Commercial Officer Peter Baumgartner said
the airline was delighted with Vincent’s appointment to Australia in time to
launch the airline’s new Perth services.
