16 / 10 / 2015
Cargolux Airlines has appointed Jason Holt as its new nominated person flight operations.
Holt succeeds Wieger Ketellapper, who will concentrate on the development of the planned joint venture airline in Zhengzhou, China.
The change took effect on October 15, following the approval of Luxembourg’s Civil Aviation Authority.
Holt has only recently taken up his position as Cargolux’s new executive vice president of flight operations. He joined Cargolux from Easyjet Airlines where he held the position of head of Gatwick operations and operational strategy for the airline.
Prior to joining Easyjet, Holt occupied various directorships at Virgin Atlantic Airways and British Airways franchise BMED. Holt holds a UK airline transport pilot’s licence and is a graduate of the University of London, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard Law School.
Said Holt: "It makes good business sense connecting with all of the teams to ensure and understand how we can interact better, listen more attentively to feedback and propose ideas for the future benefit of everyone at Cargolux.
"We are working together as a broad business team so we can start to build the platform that gets voices heard and solutions formulated. Trust and passion are the foundation for the future of the organisation."
