From July 1, Dieter Vranckx will become the new chairperson of the board at SN Airholding, the holding company of Brussels Airlines. Vranckx will succeed Christina Foerster, who is leaving Lufthansa Group. Vranckx has a longstanding career in aviation and is also the former CEO of Brussels Airlines, the press release said.

Vranckx is a Belgian national with a commercial engineer diploma and MBA from the Solvay Business School in Brussels. He began his career in aviation in 1998 at Sabena as a Management Trainee. After several roles at Swiss and Lufthansa, Vranckx joined Brussels Airlines in 2018, first as Chief Financial Officer and later as Chief Executive Officer. In 2021, Vranckx became CEO of Swiss, also part of Lufthansa Group.

Four months ago, Lufthansa Group announced that Dieter Vranckx would be appointed to the Executive Board of Lufthansa Group. As of July 1, Vranckx is responsible for Global Markets and Commercial Steering Hubs. In addition, he will also become the chairman of Brussels Airlines.

“Brussels Airlines has been an important part of my career, and I am happy to return as chairperson to the board of SN Airholding. It’s wonderful to see how far Brussels Airlines has come, and what an exciting future this airline has ahead,” said Vranckx.
