Michael Zach takes over as Head of Ground Services at Vienna Airport

Michael Zach has taken over management of ground handling services at Flughafen Wien AG, (Vienna Airport), the airport's largest division overseeing 1,400 employees.

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

He has achieved significant milestones for the company as Managing Director of the City Airport Train and most recently as Managing Director of Business and General Aviation and the VIP Terminal.

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.

Spitzer was Head of Security and Vienna International Airport Security (VIAS) and Head of Ground Services at Vienna Airport and has played a huge role in the development of the airport, turning it into one of the most punctual and reliable hubs in Europe.

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

"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," said Julian Jäger and Günther Ofner, members of the Management Board of Flughafen Wien AG.
