Jens Bischof has taken over as chairman of the management board of Cologne-based Eurowings from 2 March 2020. The 54-year-old will thus become CEO of the second largest airline in the Lufthansa Group.
Bischof was previously CEO of the SunExpress airline. He succeeds Thorsten Dirks, who is now responsible for ‘IT, Digital and Innovation’ in the Lufthansa Group executive board.
With more than 30 years of experience in the Lufthansa Group, Bischof is a passionate airline and tourism expert: he began his career at Lufthansa Cargo back in 1990. Since then, he has held several senior positions.
