Etihad Airways has appointed Jonathan Williams as sales vice-president for Europe & North America and Jeremy Pollock as UK & Ireland country manager.

Williams (pictured) replaces Martin Drew, who became the carrier’s senior vice-president for sales and managing director of cargo last November.

Williams began his aviation career in 1998 at American Airlines, and prior to joining Etihad as regional business development manager in 2020 he was head of British Airways’ UK corporate sales team for five years.

He said: “In November last year, Etihad announced a new operational model to better position us for recovery.

“We are committed to focusing on our core offerings of safety, security and service. Together with my teams in Europe and North America, we will be working hard to welcome back travellers to our industry-leading passenger experience and Etihad Wellness programme.”

He added: “As part of my new role, I can also announce Jeremy Pollock as country manager UK & Ireland. Jeremy has worked for Etihad Airways for 16 years, heading up our leisure sales team for the past decade. He will lead the combined sales effort for both markets, including leisure and corporate sales.”
