Munich Airport’s CEO voted “2017 Travel Industry Manager”

Dr. Michael Kerkloh has been the CEO and president of Munich Airport since 2002. During that time the airport has developed into a leading global transportation hub with multiple awards to prove it. A jury of 210 experts with the Travel Industry Club has now selected Dr. Kerkloh as the “2017 Travel Industry Manager of the Year”. The award is one of the most coveted honors in the German tourism sector. The Travel Industry Club counts many leading executives from all segments of the German travel industry among its members.

The award was presented to Dr. Kerkloh at a gala event yesterday evening in Cologne, with 300 guests from the travel industry in attendance. In the award citation, the jurors said, “Munich Airport is not only globally networked, offering a modern air transportation hub to more than 40 million passengers a year. It has also been achieving solid and sustainable business success for many years.

Europe’s best airport, the best terminal in the world – and, based on ratings by the aviation research institute Skytrax, Europe’s only five-star airport – Michael Kerkloh’s list of achievements is more than impressive.” The award was presented by the previous year’s winner, Michael Buller of the Verband Internet Reisevertrieb (VIR), which represents the German digital tourism industry. He noted the “amazing culture” at Munich Airport, commenting that it was evident that the staff has the desire to move things forward.
