Saudi executive takes key role in UK's Foreign Airlines Association

Posted 31 March 2017 · Add Comment

Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia) European regional sales manager, Patrizia Gallo, has been appointed chairman of the UK-based Foreign Airlines Association (FAA).

She replaces Air Europa’s Colin Stewart as he steps down following a successful three year term as FAA Chair, taking over the role on April 1.

With 30 years’ experience in the airline industry occupying senior roles for Alitalia, Royal Jordanian and Saudia, with four years as an FAA member, three years on the FAA Committee and two years as vice chair, Gallo is the most qualified successor, the Association said.

“Colin has done a wonderful job over the past three years, with membership growing as much as 20%”, Gallo said. “Successfully coordinating the FAA rebrand, the 70th anniversary celebrations, and securing the financial stability of the association, he has certainly set the bar high, but I am excited to continue the efforts to grow FAA membership whilst delivering value to our airline and associate members.”

The latest foreign carriers to join the FAA include Oman Air and Finnair. Both will become official members on April 1.
