Chairman & CEO, EgyptAir Holding Company Captain Ahmed Adel was elected as a member of the Nominating Committee of the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

During Adel's participation in the 85th meeting of the the Arab Air Carriers Organization (AACO)'s Executive Committee that was held in Tunisia, members of the committee elected Adel as member of IATA's Nominating Committee in recognition of EgyptAir's leading role in developing the air transport industry.

The Nominating Committee is appointed to make recommendations to the Annual General Meeting (AGM) for appointments of members to the Board of Governors.

The IATA groups 290 airlines representing 120 countries. Carrying 82% of the world’s air traffic, IATA members include the world’s leading passenger and cargo airlines.

The AACO's meeting took up the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)'s Global System that aims at ensuring airlines' commitment to Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation, or CORSIA.

CORSIA is an mission mitigation approach for the global airline industry, developed by ICAO. It addresses emissions from international air travel.
