Dr Michael Kerkloh reflects on close to 17 years in the hot seat at Munich Airport and is confident that he will leave a gateway and a global airport operator on the up when he retires from his position at the end of the year, writes Joe Bates.

The recent announcement that Jost Lammers will become the new CEO of Munich Airport on January 1, 2020, confirms the fact that Germany’s second busiest gateway, and possibly aviation, will lose one of its biggest and best-known characters when current boss, Dr Michael Kerkloh, leaves his position at the end of the year.
