Posted 16 May 2019 · Add Comment

Bosco Dsouza has been appointed Account Manager, Melbourne, by Virgin Atlantic Cargo as the airline looks to build on the strong growth of its Australia cargo business in the last year.

Bosco (right) joins the airline from Worldwide GSA for Qatar Airways Cargo and brings over 20 years’ experience in the cargo industry both locally and internationally having also worked for Qatar Airways in India as well as spending six years in freight sales with FedEx and, earlier in his career, working for dnata in Dubai and Saudi Customs.

In his new post, Bosco reports to Phillippa (Pip) Palmer, Manager, Regional Sales – Australia & New Zealand at Virgin Atlantic Cargo.

Virgin Atlantic achieved significant tonnage and volume growth in Australia in 2018, supporting its longstanding long-haul cargo sales and management agreement with Virgin Australia. Tonnage rose 51% year-on-year and revenues climbed 58% as customers welcomed the expansion of Virgin Australia’s international presence and the opportunity to connect seamlessly with Virgin Atlantic’s network over both Los Angeles and Hong Kong from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

“Bosco is a great addition to our team in Australia and will play an important role in helping us build on the growth we delivered last year. Our ability to connect customers in Melbourne with Hong Kong and Los Angeles through our partnership with Virgin Australia, as well as offering onward connections to the rest of the Virgin Atlantic network, continues to give us a strong advantage,” said Pip Palmer.

In 2018, growth in Australia contributed to Virgin Atlantic Cargo’s best overall revenue performance in five years and its highest freight and courier volumes since 2010.
