Adriaan den Heijer will take over as executive vice president of Air France KLM Cargo and managing director of Martinair Holland on 1 January 2020.
He will succeed Marcel de Nooijer who is joining Transavia as CEO on 1 January.
Heijer has held various commercial, operational and management posts at KLM, Air France KLM and in cargo since 1995.
In 2016, he was appointed senior vice president of pricing and revenue management at Air France KLM.
Pieter Elbers, president and CEO of KLM says: “His experience at Passage and Freight and his commercial and operational background at KLM and Air France make him a worthy successor to Marcel de Nooijer.
