Only a Man Can Run an Airline – Qatar Airways CEO

By  | 

Akbar Al Baker, the chief executive of Qatar Airways, on Tuesday declared that only a man can do his challenging job.

Al Baker made the comments moments after becoming chair of the aviation industry body’s board of governors for a one-year term, Bloomberg News reported.

At a press conference in Sydney, where the International Air Transport Association held its annual meeting, he was asked what could be done to tackle the lack of women in Middle East aviation.

Al Baker replied this was not the case at Qatar, before adding: “Of course, it has to be led by a man, because it is a very challenging position.”
