Ukrainian carrier AeroSvit has named Yuri Yemelyanov as its new general director, to succeed Alexander Avdeyev.
Over the past two years, Yemelyanov has headed Kiev-based ground services specialist AeroHandling. Previously, he held senior executive positions at Ukraine International Airlines and Donbassaero.
A spokesman for the carrier says the advisory board has set Yemelyanov the task of strengthening co-operation within the AeroSvit-led strategic alliance Ukraine Aviation Group.
He adds: "It also expects Yemelyanov to optimise airline management and improve flight regularity and customer service quality."
