Ex-BIAL COO Thomas Hoff Andersson joins Menzies Aviation
Thomas Hoff Andersson, who recently quit India’s Bengaluru International Airport as chief operating officer has taken up a new role as vice president at Menzies Aviation in Sweden.
“Can't wait to meet all new colleagues and customers in my new role as responsible for Menzies Aviation in the Northern European countries,” said Andersson announcing his new position in a LinkedIn post.
Andersson had announced his decision to move back to his hometown in Scandinavia in August through an earlier LinkedIn post and expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to work in India.
Before taking up the new role, Andersson served at Bengaluru International Airport for a little over a year and was responsible for aviation safety, security, landside, terminal and airside operations, engineering and maintenance, IT operations and projects, enterprise risk, marketing and 85 percent of staff in BIAL.
Under his leadership, BIAL became the first Indian airport to own the equipment that enhances operational capabilities, reduce downtime and faster resumption of aircraft during runway emergencies by entering into an agreement with the German aircraft recovery equipment supplier KUNZ GmbH to manufacture, supply, commission and maintain the specialised Disabled Aircraft Recovery Equipment (DARE).
