Virgin Atlantic Cargo has appointed Claire Phillips as its regional sales manager for Continental Europe.

The role will involve working with the carrier’s 17 GSA partners in the region, which generates about 15% of the cargo arm’s annual revenue.

Ms Phillips has worked at the airline for five years, most recently in customer service training but also as route development manager and capacity controller. Her new role, which will see her become responsible for revenue and budgets in continental Europe, starts on Monday.

“The knowledge and experience Claire has gained from her previous posts within Virgin Atlantic Cargo will enable her to quickly establish herself in her new role and further develop our sales strategies across Europe,” said Ryan Ellis, head of GSA territory management.

“This is an extremely important and growing region in our global network and enables customers across Continental Europe to access the Virgin Atlantic network from over 60 receiving points.”

Ms Phillips added: “It’s only when customers start to book cargo with Virgin Atlantic that they realise the wide choice of access points we offer into our international network. I look forward to supporting our customers and GSA partners in the region and to identifying new opportunities and countries where we can achieve further growth.”

Ms Phillips will be based at the airline’s headquarters at London’s Gatwick Airport.
