John W. Lampl, a 40 year veteran of the international airline industry, has been appointed Vice President Corporate Communications for the USA based international air carrier Baltia Air Lines, which is currently undergoing restructuring.
The announcement was made today by President, Anthony D. Koulouris. Baltia Air Lines, based in New York, with operations in Michigan has plans to operate non-stop flights to a variety of destinations covered in the Open Skies agreement which permits any airline of a participating foreign nation and any airline of the United States to fly between any point in those respective nations and any point in the United States.
The proposed start-up airline is undergoing a complete reorganization and is in the process of seeking United States Government FAA certification under the new financial, operational and managerial restructuring.
“We are looking forward to tapping the know-how of John Lampl’s long and successful experience at British Airways,” said Koulouris.
“As the international airline industry propels itself forward and into the soaring era of new technology, social media, environmental sensitivities and geopolitical change, Baltia Air Lines will position itself, under a new management team, to instill a unique and fresh sense of superior quality customer service and satisfaction at both ends of the Transatlantic marketplace resulting in an unparalleled passenger experience.”
“There are still numerous Transatlantic route combinations that are under-served or not served at all by the present-day carriers, and it is our objective that Baltia Air Lines, with government approvals, will quickly fill that gap,” Koulouris continued.
Lampl was born and raised in Los Angeles and he obtained his B.A. and M.S. degrees at UCLA. Following his active service in the U.S. Army, he worked in the Public Relations department at American Express Co. before joining British Airways. He and his wife live in New York City.
