Adel Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer of Air Arabia, has been named “CEO of the Year – Aviation” at the third edition of CEO Middle East Awards.
Hosted by CEO Middle East, an ITP group publication, “CEO Middle East Awards” recognise and reward outstanding success, innovation and ethics. The awards honor CEOs from across sectors through appreciation of innovative business, business excellence and overall business success, plus acknowledge the vital contribution made by individuals and their companies to the vibrancy of business across the region.
Ali, who collected the award during a ceremony held in Dubai, received the award in recognition of continued strength of the Air Arabia’s strong business model. Ali was also recognised for being at the forefront of the development of modern aviation through his contributions to the Arab aviation sector.
Commenting on the occasion, Ali said: “I am extremely honoured to have won this recognition and this award goes to the entire staff members of Air Arabia. It is our ambition to make flying affordable for everybody, whilst making the process of flying a pleasant experience for our millions of passengers who chose to fly with Air Arabia.”
Air Arabia continues to be recognised for the excellence of its operations. In July this year, the airline has been ranked as the world’s second best performing airline in Aviation Week’s annual Top-Performing Airlines (TPA) Study, which ranks the top 10 performing airlines worldwide based on five different performance categories, including financial and operational performance.
