Michael Zach takes over as head of ground services at Vienna Airport

Michael Zach has taken over the management of ground handling services at Flughafen Wien AG as of the 1th January 2024 and is now responsible for all cargo, baggage, and ramp handling as well as aircraft de-icing.

Having worked at the airport since 2006, Michael Zach has been responsible for Sales, Finance and Cargo within the Handling Services division since 2018.

He is now taking over responsibility for the entire handling department from Franz Spitzer, who is moving into semi-retirement after a career of almost 30 years at the airport.

In addition, Michael Zach has been responsible for Sales, Finance and Cargo in the Handling Services division since 2018. With his many years of management experience in various leadership roles, he has emerged as the ideal successor and now heads the largest division of Flughafen Wien AG with 1,400 employees.

Julian Jäger and Günther Ofner, members of the Management Board of Flughafen Wien AG, said, “Michael Zach is the ideal choice for the position of Head of Ground Services – he will continue the airport’s successful course.

“At the same time, we would like to thank Franz Spitzer for his dedication and commitment to our airport, which he has played a key role in shaping for many years. We wish him all the best for this new chapter in his life.”

“Since 2018, I have been able to help develop ground handling at Vienna Airport together with Franz Spitzer,” said Michael Zach, Head of Ground Services at Flughafen Wien AG.

“I am very pleased to now have the opportunity to assume overall responsibility for ground handling services at the airport and to continue the successful cooperation with my colleagues here”.
