Congratulations Martina Coogan

#Traveltradetogether

United Airlines has appointed Martina Coogan as Head of Corporate Sales U.K. and Ireland. Martina brings 25 years of industry experience to her new role.

Reporting to Karolien De Hertogh (Director Sales U.K. and Ireland), Coogan will be responsible for managing United’s overall corporate business strategy across the United Kingdom and Ireland. Her appointment coincides with a time of further expansion for United in the U.K. and Ireland. On 26 March 2023, the airline introduced a second daily flight between London Heathrow and Los Angeles, increasing the number of daily services between London Heathrow and the U.S. to 23. United is also scheduled to introduce a new daily non-stop seasonal service between Shannon Airport and its hometown hub at Chicago O’Hare starting 26 May 2023, complementing the summer seasonal daily service from Shannon to New York/Newark starting 8 April 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 23 April 2023, as well as a second daily flight from Edinburgh to New York/Newark, commencing 26 May 2023.

“We are delighted to appoint Martina Coogan as our new Head of Corporate Sales U.K. and Ireland”, said Karolien De Hertogh (Director Sales U.K. and Ireland). “With her 25 years’ experience, Martina is a highly respected and well established leader with a proven track record in the industry. 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”.

Coogan joined United in 2017 as Country Sales Manager Ireland and Northern Ireland, based in Dublin, with her role gradually expanding to include Scotland. Prior to joining United, Coogan had already gained a wide and diverse range of experience within the travel industry, initially working for a number of airlines in business development and corporate account management, and latterly moving to Travelport Digital to take up the role of Senior Project Manager and subsequently Senior Regional Account Manager.

Coogan holds an IATA/UFTAA Diploma in Travel and Tourism and in 2020 graduated from Trinity College Business School’s Innovation and Leadership Programme in cooperation with Dublin Airport.
