Middle Eastern carrier Oman Air has named Paul Gregorowitsch as its new chief executive, following the departure of Wayne Pearce earlier this year.

Gregorowitsch will join the Muscat-based operator from Air Berlin, where he has been responsible for commercial activity.

He was also the head of Dutch carrier Martinair until 2011. During his time at the operator he implemented a restructuring strategy.

Oman Air has confirmed Gregorowitsch's appointment, adding that he will oversee the next stage in its expansion plans with the addition of its six Boeing 787s, three more Airbus A330s and 11 737s.
