CEO James Hogan may be leaving troubled Etihad sooner than anticipated. Despite not scheduled to leave till 1 July, the group has named Ray Gammell as interim chief, with immediate effect.

It’s been a bad few weeks for the airline, which saw partners Alitalia file for bankruptcy and Air Berlin apply for additional financial support from the UAE carrier, resulting in a further injection of €350m.

Mr Gamell is currently the carrier’s chief for people and performance and Etihad said it would continue to recruit a new CEO.
