From Lufthansa Group to CEO of Condor Air: Peter Gerber

Peter Gerber
German Carrier Condor Airlines announces its new CEO Peter Gerber.

Gerber’s journey in the industry started back in 1992 at Lufthansa Group. Since then, Gerber has been renowned for his former position as the CEO of Brussels Airlines.

I am very pleased to be taking over the management of Condor. Under Ralf Teckntrup’s leadership, the company has overcome existential crises in recent years and at the same time set an important course for the future. The fleet change to the most modern fleet in Europe was initiated, many new employees were hired, and extensive investments were initiated, for example IT and digitalisation. We will continue this transformation together in order to lay the foundations for successful long-term growth, says Gerber.

In the past, Gerber has held various positions in Lufthansa Group,  including as a member of the Executive Board of Lufthansa Passenger Airlines, as CEO and CFO of Lufthansa Cargo, and most recently as CEO and CCO of Brussels Airlines. In total, Gerber worked with the Group for over 30 years. Through this, Gerber has garnered extensive experience in the aviation business and far-reaching expertise as a Managing Director.

This change comes after the former CEO of Condor Ralf Teckentrup handed over the office after 20 years.

United Airlines Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner Diverted Due to Reports of Smoke

Boeing is making headlines yet again after a United Airlines Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner was diverted shortly after take off. A United Airlines Boeing flight travelling between Los Angeles and Hong Kong was directed to San Francisco. This happened shortly after take-off as reports of smoke were identified inside the cabin. Approximately 90 minutes after take off, the flight was diverted and landed at the San Francisco airport.

This is, however, not the first time that Boeing is getting into hot waters. This year alone, Boeing has made major headlines due to several errors in their flights. Early into 2024, a 787 Dreamliner suddenly plunged midflight, causing people to raise eyebrows at all the problems going on with the company. Following the incident, approximately 50 passengers were treated for injuries after they arrived in Auckland.

Prior to this, Boeing also made headlines due to part of an Alaska Airlines 737 Max blowing off the side of the plane. Luckily the passenger failed to show up, causing less damage than what might have occurred during the incident.
