April 12, 2018: Alexis von Hoensbroech, current chief commercial officer of Lufthansa Cargo, is to take helm at Austrian Airlines as the new chairman from August 1, 2018. He has been in charge of the Product and Sales division since December 2014.

Dorothea von Boxberg, currently vice president Global Sales Management at Lufthansa Cargo, will succeed Von Hoensbroech, from August 1 this year. In this new role, she will be responsible for the external organisation of sales and handling, revenue management, pricing, network planning and sales management worldwide.
