Volga-Dnepr Group has named Denis Ilyin as general director of its scheduled arm AirBridge Cargo.
Ilyin has for several years been in charge of developing aviation-related business within the framework of financial-industrial holding company Basic Element. Previously, he worked at Volga-Dnepr as head of its UK office, AirBridge Cargo general manager and senior vice-president of marketing and sales.
He succeeds Tatyana Arslanova at the helm of AirBridge Cargo after several months during which Volga-Dnepr founder and president Alexei Isaikin personally managed the carrier, says a source in the company.
Volga-Dnepr says his major task is "to further improve efficiency of scheduled cargo operation and centralise business management".
