Von Boxberg is lined up to become the new chief executive of group stablemate Brussels Airlines on the same date, following the recent departure of Peter Gerber to Condor.

Bhat became chief commercial officer at Lufthansa Cargo in 2021, having previously headed the cargo business at another Lufthansa Group carrier, Swiss.

In a separate development, Bhat was elected to the board of Swiss in February.
