Cargolux Airlines International has appointed Claude Zehren as interim executive vice president and nominated person flight operations – taking over from Jason Holt with immediate effect.

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.

Incoming chief executive officer, Richard Forson says: “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.”

The carrier says Holt is leaving Cargolux to move on to a new opportunity and Forson explains: “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.”

Holt says it’s been a fast and furious year learning new skills in aviation’s most demanding sector and it has been a pleasure to be with Cargolux.
