The second largest airline in the Lufthansa Group, Cologne-based Eurowings, has a new chief executive with the arrival of Jens Bischof, 54. He was previously chief executive of SunExpress.
In charge at SunExpress for the past three years, he is credited with having successfully realigned the company, expanded it significantly and positioned it successfully in economic terms. He is regarded as a passionate airline and tourism expert.
Bischof, who began his career at Lufthansa in 1990 and formerly headed the airline’s passenger business in North and South America, succeeds Thorsten Dirks, who is now responsible for digital innovation on the Lufthansa Group executive board.
Bischof paid tribute to Dirks and the Eurowings team, who he said in just a few years had made the carrier the clear number-two airline in Germany next to Lufthansa, the largest German holiday airline and one of the leading point-to-point carriers throughout Europe.
He added: “Today, 28m customers a year fly with Eurowings – and they have been flying super punctually with significantly increased customer satisfaction for months now. All of you in this room have my highest appreciation for this development.”
