Etihad Airways has appointed James Harrison as general manager for the UK.
Harrison, who has more than 25 years of travel industry experience, takes up the role after two years as Etihad Airways’ General Manager for Canada.
He previously worked for Hertz, British Airways and Gulf Air prior to joining the airline in 2009, where he was based in Manchester. Harrison will replace Clive Wratten, who is moving to work for a travel management company.
Etihad Airways VP of global sales Danny Barranger said: “This is an exciting time to be leading the UK commercial team, as we continue to increase Airbus 380 services to London Heathrow, and with Edinburgh being added to the network from June.
“The availability of our new high-end product, The Residence, alongside our First Class apartments and Business studios on the London services also underlines the importance of the UK market to our network.”
Harrison will start his new position on June 16.
