Mr Sultan joined the UK airline from AirBridgeCargo, where he spent a year after a four-year stint at Qatar Airways Cargo as vice president cargo operations. Prior to that he spent 10 years at Atlas Air.
Mr Vekshin joined Volga-Dnepr initially in 1997, but left for a role at Bertling Logistics and then Centurion Air Cargo. He returned to Volga-Dnepr in 2016.
He will be responsible for implementing a marketing and sales strategy for the group, which comprises Volga-Dnepr Airlines, AirBridgeCargo and Atran. He will also supervise the centralisation and digitalisation of all the sales teams.
The group – and Cargologicair – shareholder Alexey Isaykin, said: “It is through our group’s joint successes that our company is in a good state of health while continuing to solve our clients’ objectives during these challenging times. Konstantin has exceptional experience and unique knowledge, which is appreciated throughout the air cargo industry.”
