Wolfgang Jani, chief financial officer of Austrian Airlines, will leave the company as at the end of August. He assumed the position of CFO and member of the executive board in April 2018. Jani has now taken the occasion of the successful conclusion of the coronavirus financing package to retire from his position on the airline.
In the future he will devote himself to new projects and challenges outside of the Lufthansa Group. The vacant management board position with responsibility for ‘finance’ will not be filled.
Instead, chief commercial officer Andreas Otto will take on the duties previously handled by Jani effective from 1 September. Accordingly, the executive board will be reduced in size, and will be comprised of CEO Alexis von Hoensbroech and Andreas Otto.
