Newcastle International Airport in the UK has appointed Aileen Wallace as cargo business development manager as it seeks to expand its cargo connections.
Wallace will work with businesses and other key stakeholders across the region to further develop cargo opportunities from the north east’s largest airport.
She has 25 years of experience in cargo, including a 10-year career in airfreight at Emirates.
Wallace said: “Newcastle International Airport already has fantastic capabilities and is home to over 15 airlines, handling over 400 tonnes of cargo every month.
“We are keen to continue to grow our cargo presence within the region.
“Airfreight holds huge economic value, and the region is home to many chemistry-using-companies, including pharmaceuticals and biotechnology.
“This sector alone exports £12bn worth of cargo each year, and I am excited to support the continued growth of the local economy and Newcastle International Airport’s cargo presence.”
