Adria Airways names new COO

NEWS FLASH


Captain Tiziano Ponseggi has been named as Adria Airways' new Chief Operating Officer (COO). Mr Ponseggi started his career as a pilot in Switzerland and has since held posts at the German aircraft manufacturer Dornier and the Federal Office of Civil Aviation in Switzerland. He also served as the COO of the Swiss regional carrier SkyWork Airlines and was most recently the Director of Operations at Etihad Regional. Mr Ponseggi joined Adria on December 1 and is expected to add aviation expertise to the company's management which is mostly made up of individuals from outside the industry.

  1. This guy did a super job at Etihad Regional and he is bringing his bag of tricks to JP to do the same.... They will be lucky to see the winter through

  2. The only reason 4K invited this guy was to start negotiations with the pilot union, since the collective agreement is coming to an end in February 2017.

  3. Excellent choice! He has many experience, operational and later as a director with great results. Why,old, Adria never hired such quality staff before? Hope now is not to late because Adria is really down..

    1. Could you please develop "great results" ?
      Looking at how Skywork and Etihad Regional have been performing so far, their situation was much worse when he left than when he arrived. And he got dismissed for that in both cases...

  5. To cut it short: he never worked for a real airline yet.

    1. My thoughts exactly. When it's written in such an ambiguous way ("held posts"), you know it's just another way of saying he held un unimportant position.

    2. Yeah, and the two super aviation experts forgot that EYR is part of EAP, a group, with more than 500 a/c fleets, but of course, that's just like waliking in a park beside being probably one of the biggest airline equities in the industry... He is former test pilot, former FOCA inspector, and Major of Swiss Army. So what more do you want??? Trump?

    3. You've got a point there. He seems to be "former" everything. The man is well known not to last in any position.

  6. Oohh, poor Adria guys...
    We've had him at Etihad Regional, well...
    In short, grossly incompetent and frustrated not to fly anymore, thus harassing crews in every possible way!
    He's been pushed out before being killed by someone...
    Brace for impact!
