There have been reports in todays Al-Alayam newspaper of Bahrain regarding James Hogan resignation at Gulf Air. Apparently a board meeting has also been called off which was to take place tomorrow (sunday) regarding new aircraft order plans.

Anyone else know anymore please add.

Do we know which aircraft family Mr. Hogan supported? His resignation may be a sign that the other one will be chosen...

The air at Gulf Air’s salmon-pink headquarters building in Muharraq was thick with speculation yesterday as rumours hit the market that airline President and CEO James Hogan had put in his resignation.
According to sources, Hogan is said to have resigned on Thursday night and will be moving to another top aviation industry post, “not necessarily in the region.”

However, Gulf Air’s public relations officials, when contacted by the Tribune, refused to confirm the news, calling it “speculation” at this stage.
“We consider this news pure speculation at this stage and as company policy we do not comment on speculation,” said the airline’s PR consultant, David Baker, speaking from Dubai.

Here's the official release...
Who's taken him??

Australian-born President and Chief Executive of Gulf Air, James Hogan is scheduled to leave his role with Gulf Air following the completion of the Project Falcon turnaround programme.

The airline will reportedly appoint a new president and chief executive before Mr Hogan’s departure, to allow for a relatively smooth leadership transition.

Chairman of the Board of Directors of Gulf Air, Abdul Aziz Jassim Kanoo stated, “On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank James Hogan for the strong and decisive leadership he has shown over the last four years, helping Gulf Air to return to its rightful place as one of the world’s leading airline brands. His vision and commitment have been exemplary.”

Hogan’s contribution to the airline has been both a successful and rewarding venture. Joining the airline in 2002, he introduced the Project Falcon programme and reduced the airline’s losses and returned it to profit in 2004.

The successful Project Falcon programme led to the re-branding of the airline, as well as the introduction of unique services including Gulf Traveller, Sky Chefs and Sky Nannies.

Mr Hogan said:

“I am incredibly proud of the progress made by Gulf Air over the last four years. It has become one of the top airline brands in the world, with a service portfolio that is the envy of competitors in the region and across the globe.

I would like to thank the leadership of each of the shareholding nations and the members of the Board for their support throughout the last four years

The future of Gulf Air is assured by the one key factor that has seen it develop so strongly over the last four years: its people. The staff and management, both in Bahrain and Oman, will take the business forward to even greater success in the future.”
