The Flight Safety Foundation (FSF) announced today that Etihad Airways had become its first Benefactor member from the Middle East, which is the highest level of membership offered by the Foundation.

In addition, Etihad Airways Vice President Corporate Safety and Quality, Captain Majed Al Marzouqi was appointed as a member of the FSF International Advisory Committee.

FSF President and Chief Executive Officer Jon Beatty said: "This is an important and fast growing region for the aviation industry and Etihad Airways involvement with FSF as its first benefactor member from the region is notable,"

"After Etihad Airways hosted our very successful International Air Safety Summit (IASS) 2014 in Abu Dhabi, we are thrilled that they've continued that commitment to aviation safety and FSF."

Based in Alexandria, Virginia, the FSF is an independent, non-profit organisation which focuses on research, publishing, educating and promoting aviation safety.

The airline hosted the 67th IASS, which is the aviation's premier global safety event, bringing together aviation professionals from around the world to identify safety issues, devise approaches to reduce risk and implement initiatives to improve safety.

Captain Majed Al Marzouqi said: "I am honoured to be a part of the FSF International Advisory committee which brings together the aviation industry through safety."

"The committee is chaired by Captain Bill Curtis from Air Canada and I look forward to working with him and looking at ways to innovate and provide ongoing safety solutions to the industry."


The Flight Safety Foundation has a membership of more than 1000 individuals and corporations from all segments of the aviation industry. Currently, 24 of those members have opted to become Benefactor members and support FSF safety programs at the highest level.
