AMMAN — The executive committee of the Arab Air Carriers Organiation (AACO) held its 82nd meeting in Amman on Thursday, hosted by Royal Jordanian (RJ) Airlines, according to an RJ statement.

The attendees, headed by Saleh Bin Nasser Al Jasser, director general of Saudi Arabian Airlines and chairman of AACO executive committee, discussed several strategic issues and the development of some joint projects among AACO members during the meeting.

 The committee also examined internal issues in preparation of AACO’s 51st Annual General Meeting that will be held between November 5 and 7, 2018. 

Participants comprised RJ President/CEO Stefan Pichler, AACO’s Secretary General Abdul Wahab Teffaha, and the CEOs of eight Arab airlines that are members of the executive committee. 

Pichler said RJ is pleased to host the chief executives of the Arab carriers, and underlined the significance of these meetings that gather the Arab airlines under one umbrella to find the best solutions that face the air transport industry in the region. 

Royal Jordanian has been an AACO member since 1965, just two years after the airline was established.    

Teffaha thanked RJ for hosting the event. He said that one of the tasks of the executive committee is to supervise the work of the organisation and discuss the main issues that concern the Arab carriers in various fields. 

Such issues include joint projects, managed by AACO, and aeropolitical matters.  

AACO is made up of 33 Arab airlines that operate over 1,400 aircraft of an average age of seven years, half of the age of other global fleets.
