Dorothea von Boxberg is set to leave Lufthansa Cargo to become the new chief executive of Brussels Airlines.

Currently chairperson of the executive board of Lufthansa Cargo, von Boxberg is anticipated to take over in Belgium as of April 15.

Brussels Airlines is almost 100% owned by SN Airholding. Since December 2016, SN Airholding has been 100% owned by Lufthansa AG.

In her new role, she will also assume the function of “Representative of the Executive Board to the European Commission”.

The long-term successor for von Boxberg at Lufthansa Cargo is due to be announced as soon as possible.

Christina Foerster, member of the executive board of the Lufthansa Group and chair of the board of directors of SN Airholding, said: “I am very pleased that Dorothea von Boxberg, an experienced and skilled airline manager from within Lufthansa Group, is assuming the leadership position at Brussels Airlines.

“With her extensive knowledge and broad understanding of cargo and passenger airlines, she will continue to drive the successful transformation of Brussels Airlines, Belgium’s national airline, in the coming years.”

Beginning her professional career in 1999 at the Boston Consulting Group, in 2007, von Boxberg moved to the Lufthansa Group, where she has held various management positions.

From 2012, she was responsible for customer experience design at Lufthansa Airline. During this time, she and her team introduced a new generation of business class seats.

In 2015, von Boxberg moved to Lufthansa Cargo and headed up the global sales management department. In 2018, she was appointed to the executive board of Lufthansa Cargo.

Initially, she was responsible for global sales, network planning, product management and product development, and since 2021 she has led Lufthansa Cargo as chairperson of the executive board.
