Cargolux appoints new EVP Flight Operations

Cargolux Airlines International has appointed Claude Zehren ‘Interim EVP and Nominated Person Flight Operations’.

Mr. Zehren takes over all duties from Jason Holt with immediate effect.

Claude Zehren has been with Cargolux for 18 years and his wealth of experience, not only as a pilot but also as a member of the management structure, is a valuable asset for Flight Operations and for Cargolux.

“It is my pleasure to welcome Claude Zehren in his new position and as part of the new ExCom team. Having worked with him closely throughout the last couple of years, I am convinced that he will be an excellent addition to the Cargolux leadership team.” Mr. Forson states.

Jason Holt, Executive Vice President for Flight Operations, has decided to move on to a new opportunity. Holt joined Cargolux last year from the UK’s leading low-cost carrier easyJet where he ran the Gatwick Division and then led their Operational Strategy & Transformation business changes.

Incoming CEO, Richard Forson said:

“Jason has made a major contribution to the airline by bringing his experience and talent to bear on the airline, including playing a major role in achieving the CWA agreement with our unions in December 2015. On behalf of my ExCom colleagues, I thank him for all the hard work, dedication and initiatives he has given us and wish him all the best for his future. We will miss him.”

Jason Holt said:

“It’s been a fast and furious year learning new skills in aviation’s most demanding sector. It has been a pleasure to be with Cargolux and I look forward to hearing of their positive transition under the new CEO and management team who now pick up the baton ahead of this year’s forthcoming high season”.

Cargolux, based in Luxembourg, is Europe’s leading all-cargo airline with a modern and efficient fleet composed of 13 Boeing 747-8 freighters and 11 Boeing 747-400 freighters. The Cargolux worldwide network covers 90 destinations, some 70 of which are served on scheduled all-cargo flights.
