The CEO of Oman Aviation Services (OAS), Dr Khalfan Al Shueili has been elected to the board of The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA).
Air cargo in the Sultanate of Oman witnessed significant growth between 2013 and 2018 with volumes almost doubling.
Muscat Airport-based Al Shueili previously spent more than seven years leading readiness operations for the Oman Airports Management Company during a period of expansion.
Sebastiaan Scholte, chairman of TIACA and CEO of Jan de Rijk Logistics says: “TIACA brings together all sectors of the cargo supply chain and the addition of OAS means we now have more airport and ground handling expertise as part of our Board from this important growing region.”
OAS signed a memorandum of understanding with TIACA in January, working together to promote air cargo growth in the Middle East.
Al Shueili says: “This step will allow us to explore new horizons of regional and global partnership, as TIACA is considered to be a very comprehensive umbrella of international cargo companies.”
