Major changes at the top of euroAtlantic....

euroAtlantic Airways – the Portuguese aircraft wet-leasing and charter business, has announced a number of top-level changes. Stewart Higginson has been appointed CEO and Chair of euroAtlantic and will be joined by the highly experienced management team of Mรกrio Alvim, Lourenรงo Gomes and Joรฃo Nunes, who will complete the Board.

Alongside the Board changes, Njord I-Jet Aviation S.A.R.L ("Njord I-Jet"), which owns a controlling interest in EAA, has committed further funding to the Company, demonstrating Njord I-Jet’s confidence in the positive outlook for the business and positioning EAA for growth as it enters the next important phase in its development.
