I am the head of the Operation Division at Hahn Air. My division incorporates the following departments: Information Technology, Product Management & Implementation, Service Desk and Second Level Support.

My way to Hahn Air 

I began my career with an apprenticeship in a travel agency and also worked as a travel agent for one year. After that, I held various positions at LTU for almost ten years in different areas of the company, for example helpdesk, GDS Management and e-ticket implementation. In 2008, I joined Hahn Air where I started as a project manager where I was responsible for implementing our interline partners. Later, I took over the department leader position which paved the way to my current role.

I like working for Hahn Air because the company has a unique business model and is a global player in various areas. Thinking outside the box combined with the flat hierarchy allows us to get things done quickly.
