Virgin Atlantic pushing sales in APAC region
Virgin Atlantic Cargo has appointed Neil Vernon as regional vice-president sales for its Asia Pacific Region. Vernon previously spent 13 years as part of the bmi cargo team at different sales posts in the European, Middle Eastern, African and South Asian cargo markets. At Virgin Atlantic Cargo, he is based in Hong Kong, reports to head of sales, Nick Jones, and is responsible for revenue for the entire Asia Pacific region. Virgin Atlantic reported a 20% growth in volumes in the Asia Pacific Region in 2013, due in part to a relaunch of flight operations from Mumbai (India), and the development of its joint venture with Virgin Australia.
