“Following the opening of Terminal A, I remain committed to unlocking full growth potential of Abu Dhabi’s trade industry,” Elena Sorlini, MD and CEO, Abu Dhabi Airports, said.
Stating “the capital boasts a wealth of offerings and a reputation for innovation. Our airports will serve as gateways to commercial opportunities”, Sorlini transitions into the role permanently after serving in an interim capacity from June 2023.
Since joining Abu Dhabi Airports, Sorlini has overseen the successful opening of Abu Dhabi International Airport’s new Terminal A, which ranks among the largest airport terminals in the world. It has the capacity to accommodate 79 aircraft at any given time, thereby strengthening the aviation sector’s contribution to Abu Dhabi’s diversified economy.
Additionally, she has played an important role in attracting new airlines and routes to Abu Dhabi, including Air France. She is also a member of the board at Etihad Airways, Abu Dhabi Aviation and ADQ Aviation and Aerospace Services.
