Antonov appoints UK sales team

December 28 - Antonov Airlines has appointed Dreamlifts Limited as its general sales agent, replacing Ruslan International.

As HLPFI reported in November, following confirmation from Volga-Dnepr that its joint venture with Antonov Airlines - Ruslan International - was being dissolved at the end of the year, Antonov revealed that Dreamlifts will take on the global sales and operations of the company's fleet of AN-124s.

Based at the airline's new offices in Stansted Airport's Diamond Hangar, Dreamlifts' sales team includes some well-known and experienced names in the outsize cargo sector.

Paul Furlonger continues his long association with Antonov Airlines, having spent the past 26 years working with the carrier's world-famous aircraft.

Graham Witton, who first began working with Antonov Airlines in 1999, once again teams up with Michael Goodisman, who commenced his career with the company in 1996.

They are also joined by Paul Bingley, who has 30 years' aviation experience, the last 12 of which have been spent working with the An-124-100.

Martin Griffiths joins the Dreamlifts team, with 18 years' aviation experience, also having worked for many years with the An-124-100 in both operational and sales roles.

A new face in the UK sales line-up is Martin Banns, who has spent his entire career in the aviation industry, the last eight of which was with the An-124-100.
