Delta Cargo - Rafael Figueroa

Delta Air Lines Cargo has appointed Rafael Figueroa as managing director of cargo operations and customer experience.

During the past decade Mr Figueroa has held several roles at Aeromexico Cargo – which counts Delta as its largest shareholder – including vice president and VP for ground handling, alongside which he chaired the SkyTeam Cargo Alliances board.

Vice president for Delta Cargo Shawn Cole said: “Not only [does he have] knowledge of the cargo and ground handling industry, but also an understanding of the Latin America market. With his familiarity of Aeromexico, we will also be able to deepen and strengthen the cargo joint cooperation agreement between Delta and Aeromexico.”

Aeromexico and Delta customers are able to access either carrier’s capacity across both networks, including trucking options.

Mr Figueroa will take over from Julian Soell, who joined the carrier in August 2016 from Mercedes-Benz.
