Zach, who is now responsible for cargo, baggage, and ramp handling, alongside aircraft de-icing, has been with the airport since 2006, and comes over from Sales, Finance and Cargo within its Handling Services division – a post he held since 2018. His other previous positions include Managing Director of the City Airport Train, Managing Director of Business and General Aviation and the VIP Terminal. Vienna Airport’s press release lauds his many achievements and years of management experience in various leadership roles, and reveals that, in his new position, he now heads the largest division of Flughafen Wien AG, which employs 1,400 staff.

Julian Jäger and Günther Ofner, members of the Management Board of Flughafen Wien AG, agreed: “Michael Zach is the ideal choice for the position of Head of Ground Services – he will continue the airport’s successful course. At the same time, we would like to thank Franz Spitzer for his dedication and commitment to our airport, which he has played a key role in shaping for many years. We wish him all the best for this new chapter in his life.”

Michael Zach, Head of Ground Services at Flughafen Wien AG, commented: “Since 2018, I have been able to help develop ground handling at Vienna Airport together with Franz Spitzer. I am very pleased to now have the opportunity to assume overall responsibility for ground handling services at the airport and to continue the successful cooperation with my colleagues here.”
