National carrier does not give reason for departure, says acting CEO has been appointed
Oman Air, the country's national carrier, has announced that the board of directors has accepted the resignation of CEO Paul Gregorowitsch.
Dutch national Paul Gregorowitsch, who previously worked at Air Berlin and Air France-KLM, joined the airline in 2014.
In a brief statement, the board of directors thanked Gregorowitsch "for his efforts during his tenure with the company" without giving a reason for the resignation.
It added that Abdulaziz Saud AlRaisi, executive vice president for products and brand development, will serve as acting CEO with immediate effect until a permanent replacement is found.
Earlier this year, Oman Air said it plans to move ahead with a multi-billion dollar order for wide-body jets early next year even though it won’t now break even in 2017.
The carrier is aiming to end losses by the end of next year, contingent on demand not deteriorating further, Gregorowitsch said in an interview in May.
