Air New Zealand has appointed Kathryn Robertson to the role of general manager UK & Europe.
Robertson has a wealth of market knowledge and industry experience, first joining the Air New Zealand team in 2007 as marketing manager UK & Europe.
Working in the role in London and then taking up the role of marketing director for the Americas in Los Angeles, Robertson later returned to the UK to take up the role of commercial manager in 2012 before being appointed sales and market development manager UK later that year.
Prior to joining Air New Zealand, Robertson started her airline career at BMI, working in key roles across the marketing and product teams.
Regional general manager Americas, United Kingdom and Europe, Chris Myers said: “Kathryn’s strong airline background and leadership skills make her the perfect fit for the role.
“She has played an integral part in driving the success of Air New Zealand in Europe and the UK, a crucial international market for the airline, and her wealth of experience will take our UK and Europe operation to the next level of commercial success.”
