LATAM Airlines appoints industry veteran as new CCO

CHILE's LATAM Airlines Group has appointed Marty St George to be its new chief commercial officer.
St George, who spent 13 years at JetBlue Airways before leaving the low-cost carrier in 2019, will start on his new job on October 1, the Santiago-based airline said.
He has more than 30 years' experience in the aviation industry and previously held positions at United Airlines and US Airways. He was also interim chief commercial officer for Norwegian Air.
LATAM said St George will lead the carrier's commercial team, with responsibility for areas including sales, marketing, network development, alliances, LATAM Pass and cargo, reports London's Air Cargo News.
In late May, LATAM voluntarily filed for US Chapter 11 creditor protection in order to undertake a restructuring process. At the time it said it was aiming to 'transform its business' to maintain a 'leading position' in Latin American air transport during recovery from the coronavirus crisis.
