The appointment coincides with the firm’s successful completion of its first year of operations to help the aviation sector overcome the impact of the pandemic.


Linus Benjamin Bauer, managing director at Bauer Aviation Advisory, said: “As a firm anchored in excellence, Michael Kerkloh’s appointment reflects the emphasis we place on providing unrivalled strategic management expertise to support the recovery and growth of the aviation industry. Kerkloh is internationally recognised and well respected as a highly experienced aviation professional who complements our team of consultants who have delivered exceptional results for our clients. We remain as committed as we were from day one to move ahead with expanding our value proposition to support the future direction of aviation.”


Dr. Michael Kerkloh joins BAA’s advisory board to deepen the firm’s experience in airport management, operational excellence, and route development. Kerkloh is currently a Supervisory Board Member at Lufthansa and was formerly President and CEO of Munich Airport for more than 17 years. The German aviation professional also brings Middle East experience as a former Supervisory Board Member at Oman Aviation Group. Over his extensive airport management career, Kerkloh has developed a reputation in Germany and internationally as a respected airport expert. Under his leadership, Bavaria's gateway to the world rose alongside Europe's top-performing air transportation hubs – both in terms of traffic growth and commercial success.


“Airports need to embrace the new era of post-pandemic air travel. Adopting the latest technologies and innovative solutions are essential for delivering a customer-centric approach that boosts cost and operational efficiencies. I am very much looking forward to working closely with Michael and drawing upon his experience in shaping a sustainable future for airports in the Middle East and beyond,” added Bauer.


Dr Kerkloh said: “Joining the advisory board at BAA during a transformational period for the aviation sector presents a great opportunity to bring my experience to support the industry recovery in the Middle East and beyond. BAA has rapidly generated trust and strong credibility among the region’s top aviation players, and I look forward to working with Linus and the team to deliver high quality strategic counsel that our clients can rely on.”
