26 / 01 / 2017
ASL Belgium, formerly TNT Airways, has poached Ulf Weber from AeroLogic, the Lufthansa and DHL Express joint venture.
Weber, who is currently managing director and accountable manager at AeroLogic, will join ASL Belgium as chief executive.
Colin Grant, who had been acting chief executive of the airline following its acquisition by ASL last year, will assist Weber during the transition to his new role. Grant also holds the role of ASL Airlines Europe chief executive.
“Ulf is an accomplished international aviation professional and his excellent record makes him a perfect fit for us,” said ASL Aviation Group chief executive Hugh Flynn.
“He is a high-achiever in all of the areas on which we focus with our corporate values, including ‘people’ where he has always excelled in leadership and team-building.”
Weber studied Aeronautical Engineering in Berlin and conducted research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
He has had an extensive career in aviation that has seen him progress to senior executive roles in both passenger and cargo operations.
"His world-wide experience includes long-haul and short-haul networks with various aircraft types and he has achieved great success in key areas including safety, reliability, quality, network planning and cost and performance management," ASL said.
Meanwhile, Grant will continue to drive strategy and actively interact with the airline’s customers. He will support key relationships and the coordination of support companies.
