Luigi Celmi, Chief Executive Officer, IDAIR

IDAIR has announced a series of new senior manager appointments.

As of 1 January, Luigi Celmi will become the new Chief Executive Officer. Before joining IDAIR he was the CEO of Lufthansa Technik Services India and prior he had been the Managing Director of ATR (an Airbus JV) in Singapore.

“Luigi is a great personality, a strong business leader and I am convinced that with his customer focused mind and his vast industry experience he is the perfect fit to continue IDAIR’S success story. As CEO he will be committed to position IDAIR in the VVIP market as an innovator of CMS and IFEC solutions and provider of customised software solutions. Moreover, he will build on IDAIR’s strong reliable existing and new partnerships as well as explore potential business opportunities and new markets,” said Christiane Grude, Senior Director Original Equipment Innovation at Lufthansa Technik AG, and IDAIR Advisory Board member.

“To move to Hamburg to join IDAIR is a great step and opportunity. I’m looking forward to lead IDAIR and to further develop the newly set paths in the challenge of customising the next generation of ever evolving entertainment and communications systems. With our international team of VIP aviation experts, software engineers and program managers we want to offer our customers an exceptional IFEC experience, just like a smart home and office in the sky, to the VVIP market and beyond while expanding IDAIR’s overall competence,” commented Luigi Celmi.

After six years of restructuring and leading IDAIR Dr Wassef Ayadi has been appointed as Senior Director Customer Relations and Sales Support Services for the business segment Original Equipment & Special Aircraft Services at Lufthansa Technik AG and will remain in an advisory role for IDAIR.
