Hakimi introduced as Ariana Airlines' new chief
Hakimi replaces Moeen Khan Wardak, a pilot, who headed the airlines for last almost four years.
Reshuffling government officials had always a positive impact on work, Hazrat Omar Zakhilwal, the Minister of Finance said at a ceremony introducing Hakimi.
Zakhilwal lauded the role played by Moeen Wardak as head of the Ariana Afghan Airlines and said he would continue to offer his valuable services to the airlines.
He praised Wardak's contributions, saying he would also work hard for the airlines' development and improvement.
When Wardak was asked whether his replacement was a result of pilgrims' problems, he said: "No, no. It has nothing to do with that mater. It is a government decision." He said he worked as pilot for last 29 years and would continue to work on the position in future as well.
