Virgin Atlantic Cargo has appointed Bosco Dsouza
as Account Manager - Melbourne.
Bosco joins the airline from Worldwide GSA for
Qatar Airways Cargo and has over 20 years’ of 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.
“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.
Virgin Atlantic achieved significant tonnage and
volume growth in Australia in 2018, supporting its longstanding
long-haul cargo sales and management agreement with Virgin
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.
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.
