Lufthansa Supervisory Board appoints Executive Board member Thorsten Dirks for three more years

The Supervisory Board of Deutsche Lufthansa decided ahead of schedule to extend the contract with Thorsten Dirks by three years until 30 April 2023. Dirks, 55, will therefore be continuing the turnaround as CEO of Eurowings.

Thorsten Dirks, who was born on 17 June 1963 in Hamburg, has been an Executive Board Member of Deutsche Lufthansa since 1 May 2017, where he is responsible for Eurowings. Under his leadership, Eurowings has significantly expanded its market position, among other things by integrating parts of Air Berlin. Today, Lufthansa’s value brand is Europe’s third-largest point-to-point airline and the clear market leader in its home markets. After a significant improvement of Eurowings’ operational performance, Thorsten Dirks and his team now set their sights on improving profitability as one of Eurowings key goals.
