Three members in future on Executive Board of Austrian Airlines (AUA) / Thierry  Antinori, Andreas Bierwirth and Peter Malanik to continue restructuring and  develop growth perspectives
        The Supervisory Board of Austrian Airlines  appointed Thierry Antinori (49) as Chairman of the Airline’s Executive Board at  its meeting today. The new Chairman – up to now Chief Marketing Officer on the  Lufthansa German Airlines Board – will take up his post, with effect from 1  April 2011.
        With today’s appointment, the Supervisory Board of Austrian  Airlines increased the members of the Airline’s Executive Board to three in  future – the other two existing Board Members are Peter Malanik and Andreas  Bierwirth.
        Stefan H. Lauer, CEO Group Airlines and Corporate Human  Resources at Lufthansa AG and Chairman of the AUA Supervisory Board: “The  strengthening of the Executive Board will add further momentum to the positive  development of Austrian Airlines. Peter Malanik and Andreas Bierwirth have  mastered the first phase of the turnaround successfully. For the second phase of  restructuring facing Austrian Airlines, our aim is to strengthen its Executive  Board and we are accordingly pleased to have as Chairman for the new challenge  Thierry Antinori, an airline manager of great experience, expertise and the  highest international prestige."
        Alongside resolute continuation of the  restructuring measures and rigorous cost management, it is imperative for  Austrian Airlines to harness growth opportunities again and further develop the  Vienna hub.
        “The challenge now is to open up and utilise new  perspectives for a leaner and more efficient Austrian Airlines,“ Stefan H. Lauer  emphasised. “Thierry Antinori is the right man to strengthen the team on the  Executive Board. He can draw on years of experience in the airline business and  look back on a successful term in charge of marketing and sales on the Lufthansa  passenger airline board. Moreover, he has demonstrated his exceptional expertise  in restructuring during the Lufthansa Climb 2011 cost-cutting programme designed  to safeguard the airline’s earnings.”
