Incumbent chairperson Saeed Darwazeh and his deputy, Bassem Al-Salem, will keep their positions, according to sources familiar with the resolutions of the panel tasked with selecting figures to represent the government on the boards of companies where it has a stake. 

Other names appointed to the airline’s board are Khloud Sakkaf, Khairi Amr, Omar Al-Fahoum, and Rajai Kamal Al-Dajani, while Abdul-Hakim Al-Shalabi will keep his seat, but as a representative of the Social Security Investment Fund instead of the government, which he represented in the outgoing board.
