Etihad has axed three senior management roles amid the ongoing Covid downturn as it transitions to a "leaner, flatter and scaleable" operating model.
The Gulf carrier is seeking to reposition itself as a mid-sized, full-service carrier, with a focus on its wide-body aircraft, as it adapts to a marketplace it believes "has changed for the foreseeable future".
Etihad said the new structure was designed to support growth when air travel resumes, and ensure "long-term sustainability".
Chief commercial officer Robin Kamark will leave the business, with his responsibilities to be shared among chief operating officer Mohammad Al Bulooki, chief financial officer Adam Boukadida, and Terry Daly, who will assume the role of executive director guest experience, brand and marketing.
Duncan Bureau, senior vice-president sales and distribution, will also leave the carrier, with Martin Drew picking up Bureau’s portfolio.
Other departures include chief transformation officer Akram Alami and chief risk and compliance officer Mutaz Saleh.
Chief digital officer Frank Meyer, chief engineering officer Abdul Khaliq Saeed, and chief investments officer Andrew Macfarlane, all retain their roles.
