Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has promoted Mr Rohan Farrance to the role of Manager Western Australia.
Rohan, a Sydney-based Etihad Airways National Account Manager for the past two years, has more than 10 years’ experience in travel industry sales and management roles.
In his new position, Rohan will be based in Perth, responsible for commercial leadership in the State of Western Australia.
Etihad Airways’ Vice President for Asia Pacific South and Australasia, Lindsay White, said the airline was delighted to welcome Rohan to the new role.
“Etihad Airways has enjoyed great success in Western Australia since launching daily flights between Perth and Abu Dhabi in July last year.
“With his strong track record in sales development and team management, Rohan will now be responsible for accelerating that growth and strengthening our foothold in the competitive Western Australian market.
“We wish him every success in the new role.”
Rohan said he was looking forward to the new challenge and to leading the airline’s Perth-based state sales team.
“I am very excited to make the move to Perth to take up the new role and look forward to working with our industry partners, corporate clients and partner airline Virgin Australia to strengthen our business in WA.
“Etihad Airways offers travellers from WA an appealing and competitive proposition with the convenience of daily flights, seamless connections to an extensive global network, and an award-winning guest experience.”
The role of Manager for Western Australia reports to the Sydney-based position of General Manager for Australia and New Zealand.
