Gulf Air has appointed Wael Mattar as senior manager cargo based in the airline’s hub.
With a long experience in airline sales and having managed Gulf Air stations in Egypt and the region, Mattar will transfer his years of knowledge and practice to manage one of the airline’s main revenue generating departments.
“I feel proud to be assigned 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 added at the announcement of his promotion, “I joined the airline in 1995 as a security and safety supervisor, then into 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 [and] achieve my dreams [of] being an aviation professional. Our airline’s development program –along with the encouragement and guidance of my superiors –allowed me to work my way up to senior management, and lead a strategic department like cargo.”
