Prague Airport appoints new chairman

Jiri Pos hopes to “enhance” the development of the hub whilst focussing on limiting its environmental impact  

Prague Airport’s board of directors has appointed Jiri Pos as its new chairman with immediate effect.  

The Personnel Nomination Committee of the Czech Republic Government approved the decision earlier this month, following a recommendation put forward for the country’s Ministry of Finance – the sole shareholder in the company.

“I do not promise the impossible within three days and miracles at once,” said Pos. “However, I am convinced that we can use the potential of Prague Airport to facilitate its return to profit and enhance its further development to the satisfaction of passengers, our business partners, and the owner, while naturally, considering the impact on the environment of the surrounding municipalities and Prague city districts. 

The new appointee is returning to Prague Airport after seven years as he originally began working for the company in 2006.  

From 2011 to 2014, he was Prague Airport chairman of the board of directors and CEO. This was then followed by him becoming a member of the Czech Aeroholding Group’s committee.  

Upon leaving that role in 2015, Pos decided to pursue his own interests within the civil aviation and tourism sectors, before landing the position as secretary of Karlovy Vary Airport in 2019.
