AeroTransCargo (ATC), a global cargo airline, has announced the appointment of Charles Szar as its new President. Szar brings a wealth of experience from his 30-year career in commercial, civil, and military aviation/aerospace across the United States, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.

Since its inception in 2014 as a charter and leasing cargo airline, ATC has been a reliable partner for shippers, freight forwarders, logistics providers, and charter brokers, offering international transportation services. Over the past year, its fleet of five Boeing 747-400 freighters has impressively completed more than 2500 flights, transporting over 122 million kilos of cargo.

ATC’s Chairman, Guneet Mirchandani, expressed his delight at Szar’s appointment, stating, “I am delighted to welcome Charles to AeroTransCargo. He has an outstanding blend of career experience that will align perfectly with the expertise we already have within ATC. This combination will ensure we continue to deliver the operational quality our customers expect and inspire fresh thinking as we look to grow our commercial operations.”

In his role as President, Szar will spearhead AeroTransCargo’s development strategy, capitalising on its significant position in the aviation market to explore further growth opportunities. His extensive career includes over 20 years in the U.S. Air Force and Army, key roles with global brands such as United Technologies and Hilti, and nearly three years as Director of Customer Engagement with TWI, an ADS Company, based in Dubai.

Before joining ATC, Szar served as CEO of Sky One, an aviation solutions provider in the UAE, for four years. He holds a dual Master of Science in Aviation/Aerospace Management and Aviation/Aerospace Safety Systems from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, and a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Liberal Arts from Excelsior University.

Szar expressed optimism about the future of AeroTransCargo, stating, “With the calibre of the ATC team and our dedicated partners, we have an exciting future ahead of us. Our ambition and ability to grow align perfectly with the new opportunities presented by our customers. The success of our journey hinges on the incredible people we work with.”

In his new capacity, Szar will collaborate closely with Air One Aviation, AeroTransCargo’s exclusive global sales agency, to facilitate global supply chain connections.
