The Munich Airport Supervisory Board has renewed CEO Jost Lammers’ contract, which was set to expire at the end of 2024, for a further five years.

Jost Lammers has headed the airport company since January 2020 and is also its chief human relations officer. Since June 2022, Lammers has also been president of the German Aviation Association (BDL) and has recently been appointed vice-president of the Airports Council International (ACI World).

Aviation expert Lammers has held senior positions at various European airports since the late 1990s. Before moving to Munich, he was in charge of Budapest’s Liszt Ferenc Airport.

The Supervisory Board Chairman, State Minister Albert Füracker, acknowledged the 56-year-old CEO’s achievements and congratulated him on the contract renewal.

"Jost Lammers took over responsibility for the airport three and a half years ago. Just a few weeks later, the airport found itself – through no fault of its own – at the centre of the greatest crisis in aviation history. With great skill, experience, the instincts required and the support of the entire airport team, he overcame this enormous challenge with flying colours.

“The decision to renew his contract early is both a thank you and a vote of confidence. With Jost Lammers at the helm, the airport will remain one of the world’s best airports and Bavaria’s gateway to the world," Füracker said.
