Thomas Cook Group Airlines’ growth story continues today with the appointment of Geir Steiro to lead its Group Maintenance Organization.
Geir brings with him a wealth of experience from previous senior roles at SAS, Aker Solutions and most recently Norwegian Air Shuttle where he was Chief Operating Officer and Accountable Manager.
He will be based at the Manchester Airport headquarters of Thomas Cook Airlines and be responsible for around 1,000 maintenance and engineering teams in five bases across four countries and serving 95 Boeing and Airbus aircraft.

”It says a lot about the growth of our airline that we can attract such a respected expert. We’re delighted to have him and with his help are confident we can further improve our maintenance and reliability performance to help us be the best leisure airline group.
“Geir will continue to harmonise the maintenance activities of Thomas Cook Group Airlines across all four markets, creating further synergies and assuring an efficient top level technical service for our operations.”
“The story of Thomas Cook Group Airlines is compelling and I’m delighted to be able to help its position as the best leisure airline. By ensuring the maintenance organisation continues to operate as one team we will ensure our customers get away on time with the excitement that all leisure travellers enjoy when they’re off on their hard-earned holidays.”
