Lufthansa has named Steffan Harbarth as the new chief executive of its Italian regional carrier Air Dolomiti, with effect from the start of next year.
Harbath is currently one of two managing directors at regional unit Lufthansa CityLine, having previously held a number of management positions at Lufthansa Group.
He succeeds Jorg Eberhart, who is moving to become Lufthansa Group’s head of strategy and organisational development, at the helm of Air Dolomiti.
Lufthansa chief operating officer Ola Hansson says: ”As one of Lufthansa Group‘s strategically important markets, Italy and the further development of Air Dolomiti is of major importance. Steffen Harbarth is the perfect choice for this new challenge given his considerable experience in commercial airline management.”
