With twelve years in the airline industry, Rafael most recently served as Vice President for Aeromexico Cargo, with prior roles as Vice President – Ground Handling for Aeromexico and as Chairman of the Board for SkyTeam Cargo Alliances.

The appointment is part of an international talent exchange program between Delta and Aeromexico, which aims to share best practices and skills across all areas of the business.

“Rafael brings extensive experience to Delta - not only through his knowledge of the cargo and ground handling industry, but also through his understanding of the Latin America market,” said Shawn Cole, Delta Cargo – Vice President. “With his familiarity of Aeromexico, we will also be able to deepen and strengthen the cargo joint cooperation agreement (JCA) between Delta and Aeromexico, as well as continue the momentum of providing industry leading operations and customer service.”

The JCA between Delta and Aeromexico allows customers to work with either carrier to transport cargo across a broad network of flights and joint trucking options. Delta and Aeromexico Cargo have ten co-located warehouses and the two companies are implementing joint sales and marketing initiatives in both countries.

With Lindsey Jalil leading Cargo’s Commercial teams and Eric Wilson leading Global Sales, Rafael will complete the strong leadership team, under Shawn Cole.
