Karl Ulrich Garnadt has been appointed as vice-chairman of Ameco Beijing.
Garnadt is chief executive of Lufthansa’s passenger arm and also responsible for airport and air traffic charges across the German airline group.
Air China president Song Zhiyong has been the chairman of Ameco Beijing since March.
Ameco Beijing is a 60:40 joint venture between Air China and Lufthansa. Air China has plans to merge its own maintenance arm Air China Technics with Ameco Beijing. Progress has however been slow because of Lufthansa’s involvement in Ameco Beijing.
