Ex-Lufthansa Cargo manager Thilo Schäfer has been appointed managing director of Leisure Cargo — the ‘virtual cargo airline’ of German low cost carrier airberlin — taking up his role next month (March).
Schäfer will lead the company together with Klaus Sieger.

His extensive knowledge of the logistics industry will allow him to play a key role in shaping Leisure Cargo’s ongoing strategic development as a ‘virtual cargo airline’.”

"I am convinced that our strong team and global partners will allow the future-oriented and successful development of Leisure Cargo to continue.”
