Emirates SkyCargo names Abdulla Alkhallafi as new cargo manager for India
Feb 26, 2020: Emirates SkyCargo has appointed Abdulla Alkhallafi as the new cargo manager for India. Alkhallafi will be based out of Delhi and will be overseeing all commercial and operational aspects of Emirates SkyCargo in one of the air cargo carrier’s most important markets globally. He will be taking over from Keki Patel, who will be retiring after his tenure of more than 15 years as Cargo Manager for India with Emirates.
Alkhallafi is no stranger to the nuances and dynamics of the air cargo market in India having previously worked as Cargo Manager for North India for Emirates since June 2017. He is a UAE national who joined Emirates in 2014 as part of Emirates SkyCargo’s Commercial Management Programme. Following his initial training at Dubai, Alkhallafi was posted to Singapore where he had the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of Emirates’ operations in an overseas market. He holds a BBA in Finance & Banking from the University of Dubai.
Nabil Sultan, Emirates’ divisional senior vice president, cargo said, “We are delighted to appoint Abdulla Alkhallafi as the cargo manager for our India operations. As a graduate of Emirates SkyCargo’s Commercial Management programme, Abdulla has shown immense potential in his previous roles and we have no doubt that his dynamism and his understanding of the air cargo industry will help drive further growth for Emirates SkyCargo in India. We would also like to thank Keki Patel for his extensive contribution to the business over close to two decades.
“Emirates SkyCargo’s Commercial Management programme provides a strong grounding and well- rounded exposure for young UAE nationals to the global logistics industry. Trainees are then able to apply this know-how in order to progress to more senior roles within the organisation. We have more than 12 UAE nationals who have graduated from the programme since 2014,” he added.
