Emirates - A Saeed (r) F Ahli (l)

Emirates SkyCargo has appointed its first Emirati female cargo managers, to take over operations in Kuwait and Oman.   

Fatma Ahli will hold responsibility for Kuwait and Alyazeya Saeed for Oman.  

Both graduated from the carrier’s commercial management programme, designed to provide UAE nationals with the requisite skills and knowledge to join the air freight sector.  

They joined the carrier in 2016. Ms Ahli served as Emirates’ cargo commercial and operation manager for the Far East and Australasia, while Ms Saeed held the same role for European operations.  

Divisional senior vice president of Emirates Skycargo Nabil Sultan said the development programme continued to show “substantial potential”.  

The programme has graduated more than 10 UAE nationals since 2014 who now occupy several senior roles in the organisation. I am confident that both Alyazeya and Fatma will be great assets to the team and we’re very proud to see Emirati women succeed in the cargo logistics industry.”
