United Airlines has appointed Martina Coogan as head of corporate sales for the UK and Ireland, effective from 1 April.
Reporting to regional sales director, Karolien De Hertogh, Coogan will be responsible for managing the carrier’s overall corporate business strategy across the United Kingdom and Ireland.
“With her 25 years’ experience, Martina is a highly respected and well-established leader with a proven track record in the industry,” said De Hertogh.
“In her new role, I know that Martina will continue to spearhead corporate business growth, with a focus on the evolving needs of our corporate customers across this important region," she added.
Coogan joined United in 2017 as country sales manager Ireland and Northern Ireland, based in Dublin, with her role gradually expanding to include Scotland. Before joining the carrier, she was a senior regional account manager for Travelport Digital and prior to that worked with a number of airlines in business development and corporate account management.
Her appointment comes as the carrier looks to expand its network across Europe and recently introduced a second daily flight between London Heathrow and Los Angeles. United will also introduce a new daily non-stop seasonal service between Shannon Airport and its hub at Chicago O’Hare from 26 May 2023.
For the summer season, the airline will also add a second daily flight from Dublin to New York/Newark and a daily flight from Dublin to Chicago O’Hare, both commencing on 23 April 2023, as well as a second daily flight from Edinburgh to New York/Newark from 26 May 2023.
