Ali Ahmed Alnaqbi elected IBAC Governing Board Vice Chairman

Posted 17 January 2017 · Add Comment

Ali Ahmed Alnaqbi, founding chairman of the Middle East and North Africa Business Aviation Association (MEBAA), has been elected Vice Chairman of the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) Governing Board.

The three-year appointment commences in January 2017 following his election in December last year.

The IBAC Governing Board serves the diverse needs of business aviation across the globe and is involved in all ICAO forums that affect business aviation, in addition to directing the council.

“I am honoured to have been elected to the Vice Chairman position of the IBAC Board,” said Alnaqbi. “This opportunity to guide the business aviation sector is a perfect synergy with my passion for the industry and previous achievements. I look forward to driving the industry forward in the next three years in this role.” 

MEBAA received IBAC approval almost immediately after its inception, when Alnaqbi announced his intention to unite the business aviation community in the Middle East and North Africa under a single banner representing 25 counties throughout the region.

In addition, MEBAA has had a significant impact on drafting legislation and rules specific to business aviation in the entire region.  As a result of these successes along with Alnaqbi’s tireless commitment and dedication to business aviation he is the first Arab to hold this position within the international council, after previously serving as the treasurer for three years.
