As well as re-electing Maurizio Merlo, CEO of Etihad Regional operated by Darwin Airline, and Clemente Affinito, ATR’s VP sales in Europe, to its board, The European Regions Airline Association (ERA) has also introduced new members.
Newcomers include Patrice Candaten, Embraer Commercial Aviation’s senior sales director, Mark Balentine, VP global operations for Jetscape, and Montenegro Airlines’ technical director, Aleksandar Draki?.
“The diverse and expert market knowledge that ERA’s board members bring to the association is invaluable,” says Simon McNamara, ERA’s director general. “In a dynamic market it is extremely positive and heartening that ERA members can be counted on to dedicate their time and skill sets to the association, contributing to both its success and that of the European aviation market.”
