New UK and Ireland boss named by Air France-KLM

Fahmi Mahjoub has been named as new London-based UK and Ireland general manager for Air France-KLM.

He was previously vice president of pricing and revenue management and has more than 22 years of experience with the organisation.

His predecessor Benedicte Duval, who was in the UK for four years, has taken over the role of cargo vice president for Africa, based at Air France headquarters in Paris.

Mahjoub said: “I am delighted to be joining the UK and Ireland team and honoured to lead the Air France-KLM operation in what is one of the biggest markets for the group.

“Especially in the current climate, I look forward towards maintaining a strong regional presence for Air France and KLM across the regions, while working closely with our strategic partners to enhance our customer value proposition and create exciting network opportunities for our customers to reach the world once again.

“As more and more of our planes take to the sky, I am also particularly looking forward to supporting our corporate clients getting back to business, helping our leisure passengers reach their holiday destinations, and most importantly, bringing families back together.

“Finally, I would like thank Benedicte Duval for her outstanding contribution and hard work in the UK and Ireland and for her inspirational leadership.”
