AIR Seychelles, the national airline of the Republic of Seychelles, has appointed former Etihad Airways regional general manager Asia Pacific South and Australasia, Cramer Ball, as its CEO.
Ball has been seconded to the Seychelles flag carrier as part of its restructuring, which will be implemented under a management deal with Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE and a 40-per cent stakeholder in Air Seychelles.
Before joining Etihad Airways, Ball held senior management positions at Gulf Air, Qantas, Kendell Airlines and Ansett Australia/Air New Zealand.
Meanwhile, Etihad Airways has appointed Lindsay White to take over from Ball as regional general manager Asia Pacific South and Australasia.
White was previously Etihad Airways’ general manager Australia and New Zealand, a position he held since September 2008. Prior to that, he was the airline’s country manager for Malaysia.
