Jost Lammers to Head Munich Airport for Another Five Years


The Munich Airport Supervisory Board has renewed CEO Jost Lammers’ contract for another five years. The contract had been due to expire at the end of 2024.

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

“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 center 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,” said Mr Füracker. “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!”

Jost Lammers has headed the airport company since January 2020 and is also its Chief Human Relations Officer.

Since June 2022, Jost has also been the president of the German Aviation Association (BDL) and on Monday was appointed as Vice President of the Airport Council International ACI World at the ACI World Annual General Assembly in Barcelona.

Jost has held senior positions at various European airports since the late 1990s. Before moving to Munich Airport, he was in charge of the Liszt Ferenc Airport in Budapest and played a key role in the success of the Hungarian capital’s airport.

His first few years at Munich Airport were dominated by the COVID-19 pandemic, which brought about the greatest aviation crisis since the war.

Aviation has since recovered rapidly and Munich Airport is operating at around 80% of pre-pandemic levels. Intercontinental flights in particular are doing very well, with destinations in the US, India, South Korea, Singapore and Thailand already outperforming 2019 levels.
