One of the best-known CEOs in the airport business is due to retire at the end of this year at the age of 66, after a 17-year stint successfully running Germany’s second busiest gateway—Munich Airport (MUC). In his time leading the two-terminal, two-runway Lufthansa hub, Dr. Michael Kerkloh has created what is widely regarded as a well-oiled and efficient airport operation. In 2018, MUC was the eighth busiest airport in Europe handling 46.3 million passengers, up from 32.7 million in 2009, despite Transavia pulling out of MUC and Air Berlin ceasing operations. In the first six months of 2019 the airport set a new traffic record of 22.7 million passengers, driven by steadily increasing demand for international travel, particularly the lucrative intercontinental segment, which grew at 10.6% – more than double the Europe-wide growth rate of 4.5%.
