There are personnel changes at the management level at AeroLogic, the joint venture between DHL Express and Lufthansa Cargo. As of October 1, 2022, Katharina Prost is the new Managing Director responsible for Finance and Administration at AeroLogic. Previously, she served as Managing Director at Aeromar, a joint venture between Aeroflot and LSG SkyChefs in Russia. She succeeds Martin Hirsch, who joined Austrian Airlines as Head of Finance in June.
Thanks to a contract extension, Joe Moser, Managing Director of Operations and Accountable Manager of AeroLogic GmbH, will remain active in his existing role, which he has held since March 2017. Previously, he led Flight Operations and Crew Training at AeroLogic.
Dorothea von Boxberg, Chairperson of the Executive Board and CEO of Lufthansa Cargo, said: “With Katharina Prost, we have been able to win an experienced manager for AeroLogic and welcome her warmly. We are also pleased to continue the very good cooperation with Joe Moser. We can now look back on fifteen years of the joint venture and are very proud of what we have achieved together: safe and reliable flight operations and steady growth in the fleet by both partners. In the future, we will continue to rely on good cooperation in the joint venture and an excellent offer for our customers.”
AeroLogic, as a joint venture, has existed between DHL Express and Lufthansa Cargo since 2007 and is based at the important cargo location of Leipzig. The start of the joint operations dates back to the summer of 2009. Lufthansa Cargo currently markets the capacities of a total of 16 Boeing 777 freighters. Of these, five aircraft are chartered from AeroLogic and also operated by AeroLogic crews, but they operate under a Lufthansa Cargo flight number. The AeroLogic-owned fleet consists of a total of 21 Boeing 777F aircraft.
“We warmly welcome Katharina Prost to AeroLogic. She brings a wealth of valuable experience and perspective,” said Travis Cobb, Executive Vice President of Global Network Operations & Aviation at DHL Express. “At the same time, we are delighted that Joe Moser has agreed to extend his appointment. It provides AeroLogic with both stability and continuity and sets it up for further growth.”
