Martin Drew, the fast-rising airline executive who took on the role of chief at Jet Airways Cargo, has returned to Etihad – but on the passenger side. He will become vice-president for the Americas, responsible for the commercial organization of Etihad Airways in the United States, Canada and South America.

Jet Airways has confirmed to The Loadstar that James Gilliard, manager – cargo Asia Pacific, will handle the responsibilities of the Cargo division in the interim basis. Mr Gilliard has worked at Jet since April 2014, after roles at Etihad as senior global key account manager and regional cargo sales manager.

He was also Gulf Air’s cargo manager for Europe.

Jet Airways recently launched its first freighter service, operated by Etihad, and could add two more A330-200Fs to its fleet. It has been steadily increasing its cargo interests.
