Ali Ahmed Alnaqbi Re-elected as IBAC Chairman

Ali Ahmed Alnaqbi has been re-elected as the Chairman of the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) for the second time at the Governing Board meeting, held in Orlando.

Alnaqbi, who is also the Chairman of the Middle East & North Africa Business Aviation Association (MEBAA), has chaired the IBAC since 2020 after a three-year term as the vice chairman.

“I’m delighted to chair the IBAC for the second time in a row,” said Alnaqbi. “We have reached multiple milestones for the last three years, despite the difficult time caused by the pandemic.”

Alnaqbi, who has been in the business aviation sector for more than 30 years, said the IBAC Governing Board is working with member associations and the International Civil Aviation Organization to achieve net-zero emissions.

Alnaqbi founded MEBAA in 2006 in Dubai representing the Middle East and North Africa region under the umbrella of IBAC. MEBAA plays an important role in drafting legislation and rules specific to business aviation and represents the entire community to the local aviation authorities.
