Amanda Matar has joined Virgin Atlantic Cargo in Australia as account manager, Sydney.

Ms Matar joins the carrier as it increases its long-haul cargo sales and management services for Virgin Australia with this month’s launch of Virgin Australia’s five weekly Boeing 777-300ER flights from Melbourne to Los Angeles. The two airlines have worked together since 2009 and signed a new long-term agreement last year.

Ms Matar reports to Pip Palmer, who was promoted to regional sales manager, Australia and New Zealand by Virgin Atlantic last year, having previously worked for the airline in Australia in both customer service and account management roles.

She joins from Megatop Cargo in Australia, where she spent seven years in import and export customer service and, for the last three years, as export manager. She has also held a position as cargo reservations officer at Garuda Indonesia Airlines.

Ms Palmer said: “I know our customers in Sydney will enjoy working with Amanda. As a former customer of Virgin Atlantic Cargo, Amanda clearly understands what our freight forwarding partners expect in terms of great service, which is at the heart of everything we do.”

Virgin Atlantic Cargo is also recruiting a new account manager – Melbourne to support customers based in and around the city.
