Emirates has recently appointed Saeed Abdulla Miran as Country Manager for the Philippines.
With an almost decade-long track record with Emirates, Saeed is tasked to lead the airline’s operations here in the Philippines while helping drive further its growth in the country. His appointment comes at a time when air travel from the Philippines to other destinations around the world is picking-up following the easing of border restrictions in many countries. Emirates is considered the top carrier for hundreds of thousands of Filipinos who live and work in the UAE, and as the new Country Manager, Saeed’s leadership will be critical in setting the future direction of the airline in the market.
Before being assigned to the Philippines, Saeed was the Area Manager for Hong Kong, where he was assigned to lead the operations of Emirates. He also oversaw key stakeholder relations amidst an ever-evolving travel environment. He also directly contributed to the growth of Emirates’ market share in Hong Kong.
Before his appointments to Hong Kong and now the Philippines, Saeed served as the Country Manager for Bangladesh from 2018 to 2020 and Country Manager for Sudan from 2016 until 2018. He started his career with Emirates in 2013 as Commercial Support Manager in the UAE and was later posted in Qatar with the same position in 2015.
Saeed graduated from the American University in the UAE with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and a master’s degree in Diplomacy.
