He is a welcome addition to our management team.”
Commenting on his new appointment, Mueller adds: “My interest in aviation extends beyond the 20 years I have spent in the industry, and it’s been hard to ignore the phenomenal growth of Etihad Airways since its launch. 
“With the recent creation of the Etihad Aviation Group, there’s no doubt that future developments will be even more ambitious and I am excited about the opportunity to contribute.”
