Nabil Sultan transitions to passenger sector as Emirates SkyCargo witnesses organizational shifts

Effective from March 1st, Sultan will transition to the passenger sector

Emirates Airlines has disclosed significant changes within its organizational structure, notably involving Nabil Sultan, the current head of cargo.

Effective from March 1st, Sultan will transition to the passenger sector, assuming the role of Executive Vice President (EVP) for passenger sales and country management.

However, Emirates has not yet announced a successor for Sultan’s position within SkyCargo.

This transition comes amidst broader management alterations within the airline group, with 19 promotions announced across various divisions.

However, the cargo division appears to be experiencing notable transformations. Nadeem Sultan, who recently assumed the role of head of freighters and cargo planning, is now seeking to fill the position of manager for cargo planning & freighter development following the departure of KP Minesh.

In a parallel development, Robert Fordree was welcomed to Emirates Airlines in November as the Senior Vice President (SVP) of cargo operations worldwide.

Speculation suggests Fordree might be a contender for the vacant top position within SkyCargo, unless the airline opts for an Emirati candidate.

An individual formerly associated with the airline remarked, “These changes create something of a vacuum, relative to what Emirates had before. And the freighters team is having a total revamp too. There is a bit of musical chairs going on.”
