Director General of Saudi Arabian Airlines Elected to IATA Board of Governors

Decision was announced during the virtual meeting of IATA’s General Assembly in Amsterdam

The General Assembly of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) has elected His Excellency Eng. Ibrahim bin Abdulrahman Al-Omar, Director General of Saudi Arabian Airlines (SAUDIA), to serve as a member of the IATA Board of Governors for a period of three years. The appointment was announced during the Association’s 76th Annual General Meeting, which was held virtually in the Dutch capital of Amsterdam on November 24, 2020.

The Board of Governors is IATA’s highest executive authority and consists of 31 Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) from the Association’s airline members, in addition to IATA’s CEO. The Board oversees the development of plans and strategies related to the world air transport industry, and sets IATA’s general policies as well as those on security, safety, and environment affairs. It also follows up on the Advisory Councils’ tasks emanating from the Board and is responsible for appointing IATA’s CEO and other senior executives.

Following his election, His Excellency Eng. Ibrahim Al-Omar stated that he takes great pride in the trust granted to him by the members of IATA’s General Assembly. He stressed that this trust reflects the strong position of the Kingdom’s national carrier among the world’s major airlines, as well as its influential and pioneering role within the industry and commitment to the safety standards and operating methods approved by IATA.

The International Air Transport Association includes nearly 290 airline members from 120 countries across the world, which together generate 82% of global air traffic. Saudi Arabian Airlines plays a vital role in the world air transport industry as an IATA-authorized training center.
