Mouaniss will lead all commercial activity for the carrier in the West region including Europe and the Americas, and will be based in Etihad Cargo's head office in Abu Dhabi, UAE, says an official release.

Mouaniss joined Etihad Cargo in 2019 as General Manager, Benelux and Nordic region, and most recently was Area General Manager, North and West Europe.

"Soufyan has been an influential member of Etihad Cargo's team and has achieved outstanding success in his previous roles," says Tim Isik, Vice President, Commercial, Etihad Cargo. "He has demonstrated his ability to deliver results, reaching financial targets and spearheading organisational growth in his regions. I am confident Soufyan will thrive in this new position and will play a pivotal role in expanding Etihad Cargo's reach in the West, which is a key region in the carrier's ambitious expansion plans."

Mouaniss adds: "I am delighted to take on this new challenge at such an exciting time for Etihad Cargo. As the carrier launches new routes and increases frequencies in the region, I look forward to working closely with partners and customers to ensure Etihad Cargo meets delivery promises and remains the air cargo partner of choice."

Etihad Cargo now offers additional belly capacity to two new European gateways via four weekly flights to Copenhagen and three flights per week to Düsseldorf, the release added. "The carrier is also offering increased frequencies to Munich, Rome, Madrid and Milan." Etihad Cargo operates four dedicated freighter services per week to Frankfurt, five to Amsterdam and two to Chicago.
