TATV INSIGHT: Conversation with IATA's Regional VP, Kamil Al-Awadhi

Posted 10 May 2021 · Add Comment

IATA's leadership has a fresh look about it with former IAG and British Airways CEO Willie Walsh taking over as CEO and former Kuwait Airways CEO Kamil Al-Awadhi becoming the regional vice president for the Africa and the Middle East region.

Al-Awadhi is an engineer by background who achieved a childhood dream when he joined his country’s flag carrier’s engineering team.

Getting to learn his trade in the workshops and then internationally, he rose through the ranks to lead the safety team and eventually the whole airline.

Now, having experienced the effect of the pandemic, Al-Awadhi is ready to work with airlines and governments to ease the recovery across the whole region and is already identifying other challenges ahead.

In this TATV INSIGHT programme, he talks to Alan Peaford about his road to the IATA post and his plans for helping the region’s carriers.
