British Airways (BA) has appointed a new country commercial manager for the UAE, Oman and Yemen.

Judith Limburn has been with the British national flag carrier since 1995 and takes up her post at the BA's regional head office in Dubai, UAE, this month.

Limburn, a graduate of Cambridge University, began her career with British Airways on a fast track general manager programme.

I am excited about my new responsibility for such a unique market. I have a highly professional team and look forward to working with them to develop long-term relationships with our trade and business partners, and across the community."
