Luxembourg’s airport will be seeking a new CEO to succeed the Belgian, who will take charge at Köln-Bonn airport on 1 June.
Johan Vanneste, who has been the CEO of Luxairport since January 2014, has announced his decision to leave Luxembourg for Germany. The decision was confirmed by the German airport authorities on Monday.
Vanneste took over the post in Luxembourg from Fernand Brisbois, and has overseen rapid growth in passenger numbers at the airport due partly to the introduction of several routes operated by so-called budget airlines. Indeed, in 2017 Findel served some 3.6 million passengers, up from just 2.1 million when Vanneste took over.
