Demonstrating its commitment to offering its employees the opportunity to grow and experience new challenges, Emirates has announced several management changes in its commercial operations team within Africa.

The new appointments will enable five former graduates of Emirates’ dedicated UAE National Management Programme to take on new challenges across the region.
”These moves reinforce our commitment to the long term career development of our employees” said Hubert Frach, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President Commercial Operations West. “Market dynamics vary in every one of our destinations creating a unique working environment and offering our Country Managers the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of the aviation industry.”

Africa is a market that is constantly evolving with over 150 flights operating across the continent each week. The region continues to grow exponentially each year and Emirates is well placed to capitalise on this growth with a 24 destinations across the continent.
The management changes for Emirates’ commercial operations in Africa include:
Husain Al Safi, new Country Manager Zambia. Alsafi holds bachelor degree in Engineering Management from the Higher Colleges of Technology, UAE. In 2007, Al Safi joined Emirates as a Commercial Trainee and was appointed Country Manager for Bangladesh in 2009 and a year later for Yemen.
