Dosé, an airline industry veteran with more than 30 years experience in the aviation business, will take office on April 1, 2007.

"I am pleased that we were able to draw an internationally recognised professional in André Dosé as the new CEO of our airline," said Chairman of the Gulf Air Board of Directors and Oman's Minister of Transport and Communication Shaikh Mohammed bin Abdulla Al Harthy.

Dosé, who has worked in nearly every division of the airline industry, is delighted with his appointment as the chief of the world class airline.

"During the past three years I continued my involvement in the airline industry through a number of consulting jobs. But to return to the top of an international airline is a source of great satisfaction and a challenge," says André Dosé on his appointment as CEO of Gulf Air.

Prior to airline pilot training in the United States, he attended aviation school in Geneva. Upon his return to Switzerland he first became a pilot for Crossair, then filled a number of management positions including Chief Executive Officer for this leading European regional airline. After the collapse of the Swissair Group in October 2001, he was the driving force behind the development of Switzerland's new national carrier Swiss.
