Tim Clark to retire

EMIRATES has announced the retirement of its long-standing President Tim Clark, effective 30 Jun (TD breaking news).

Clark has been with the airline since 1985 and will remain with the company in an advisory role to ensure a smooth transition.

Paying tribute to Clark’s influence on the carrier, Emirates Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum said he was a key leader for the airline through a range of challenging periods.

“Through wars, economic recessions, disasters natural or man-made, and various industry upheavals, Tim has ably steered and grown EK to its standing today as the world’s largest int’l airline,” Maktoum said.

“There is no question of Tim’s brilliance as an airline manager and planner, nor of his courage in taking forward bold ideas, and his dedication to quality and innovation,” he added.

Media reports suggest possible replacements include EK’s COO Adel Al Redha and Flydubai’s CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith.
