Deutsche Aircraft has appointed Anastasija Visnakova as its new VP sales and marketing, effective 1st August 2022.
Visnakova brings to Deutsche Aircraft over 15 years of aviation experience, gained both in the airline and aircraft OEM industries. Visnakova has held various executive positions in Air Baltic, Primera Air and DeHavilland Aircraft of Canada, focusing on sales, marketing, market development, and business development.
Leveraging her significant aviation and regional aviation experience, Anastasija will be responsible for all aircraft sales, including the D328eco aircraft, the legacy D328 aircraft, as well as overseeing marketing activities, overall communications and customer experience.
Visnakova holds bachelor degrees in both social sciences and law. She is currently completing a LL.M. degree at the University of Edinburgh, focusing on Innovation and Technology. She also attended Harvard Business School and the Stockholm School of Economics, focusing on business administration, leadership and aviation management.
She said: “I am excited to join Deutsche Aircraft as vice president sales and marketing to further work on developing the product, the commercial team, the customer portfolio for D328eco, as well as the legacy D328 business. Providing technology to the most modern standards, in combination with a reduced environmental footprint in operation and production, I believe that the D328eco is a fantastic product that will provide operators with the best choice in the market of turboprops up to 50 seats. At the same time this aircraft will be a great replacement for older regional jets up to 70 seats. Deutsche Aircraft have an amazing team of great professionals I am truly honoured to join: I am looking forward to working together with the team towards our goals.”
Deutsche Aircraft’s new D328eco is being developed to deliver significant improvements in operational and maintenance costs as well as reductions in the overall carbon footprint. This is in line with their vision and strategic road-map to support a more sustainable future for aviation. The D328eco will offer maximum flexibility from normal aviation fuel, to a blend, and up to 100% H2-PtL. H2PtL has a similar CO2 footprint compared with H2 direct burn.
The aircraft will be assembled in the paperless production line at Leipzig/Germany. All parameters are in high demand in the current aviation environment and we already see an increased interest in the D328eco from our potential customers and partners.
