(Bloomberg) --Etihad Aviation Group has appointed Andrew Macfarlane, a former ADIA executive, as its chief financial officer as the state-owned carrier pushes ahead with a restructuring plan.

Etihad reduced its routes and slashed aircraft orders worth $21.4 billion after abandoning a plan to build a global network of airline investments. The turnaround effort is being led by the former head of London’s Heathrow airport Tony Douglas and in 2018 the carrier posted a loss of $1.28 billion.

Macfarlane replaces Adam Boukadida, who became the interim CFO in April after Mark Powers left the company.

Prior to joining ADIA, Macfarlane was the CFO of Dublin-based Aer Lingus.
