PEOPLE_Jason Holt CargoluxLUXEMBOURG: Jason Holt, Executive Vice President for Flight Operations, has decided to move on to a new opportunity.

Jason joined Cargolux last year from the UK’s leading low cost carrier easyJet where he ran the Gatwick Division and then led their Operational Strategy & Transformation business changes.

In the short time he has been with us, Jason has played a significant role in the development of Cargolux and has made invaluable contributions to our organization. This included, following the departure of the then incumbent, assuming responsibility for its Global Logistics Division, covering the airlines network (including Luxembourg), whilst retaining his responsibilities as EVP Flight Operations.

Incoming CEO, Richard Forson states that, “Jason has made a major contribution to the airline by bringing his experience and talent to bear on the airline, including playing a major role in achieving the CWA agreement with our unions in December 2015.

On behalf of my ExCom colleagues, I thank him for all the hard work, dedication and initiatives he has given us and wish him all the best for his future. We will miss him.”

Jason states that “it’s been a fast and furious year learning new skills in aviation’s most demanding sector. It has been a pleasure to be with Cargolux and I look forward to hearing of their positive transition under the new CEO and management team who now pick up the baton ahead of this year’s forthcoming high season”.
