Zubkov becomes TIACA secretary general

Vladimir Zubkov is to take over as secretary general of TIACA from Doug Brittin, who retires at the end of the year.

Zubkov has more than 40 years’ experience in the air transport industry, including senior roles with the International Civil Aviation Organisation, and, most recently, as vice president of Volga-Dnepr.

He said: “We recognise that TIACA needs to grow its engagement in territories where it is under-represented such as the Far and Middle East, Latin America, and Africa, and we will focus on recruiting more members in those areas.

“We must also continue to push for the modernisation of the industry, championing e-commerce and e-freight penetration and talking convincingly to the World Trade Organisation, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, regional development banks, and relevant regional organisation to form new alliances to drive faster and more complete adoption of e-freight.”
