Coyne Airways appoints Tristan Koch as Managing Director as part of ongoing expansion plans

Koch will join the management team in the New Year to support the all-cargo carrier’s global expansion plans

London, UK, Tuesday 11th December 2018 – Coyne Airways today announced that Tristan Koch will be joining the airline in January 2019 as its new Managing Director, as part of ongoing global expansion plans.

Based in London, UK, Koch’s responsibilities will cover the original markets Coyne pioneered around the Caspian, as well as 50 markets in the Middle East and Africa, which Coyne now serves.

“The appointment of Tristan marks an important landmark in Coyne’s history as we celebrate 25 years of serving niche markets,” said Larry Coyne, Founder and serving Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Coyne Airways.

“We are expanding our existing business and extending our operations to new territories, and Tristan is very much part of that planned growth.

“He brings a wealth of cargo experience and will spearhead the next phase of Coyne’s development.

“Since we began our operations in 1994 we have prided ourselves on our pioneering spirit seeking to offer our customers solutions in difficult places.

“Tristan brings an entrepreneurial spirit and customer focus that will enable us to fulfil our ambition to open new routes and offer increased capacity and scheduling to our existing customers.”

Koch has over 18 years of experience in the air cargo industry, including senior roles at British Airways, and, most recently, American Airlines, where he was Managing Director Cargo Sales, EMEA ISC.

“I have been lucky enough to work for two of the greatest airlines in the world,” said Koch.

“I am looking forward to using that experience to help Larry and the Coyne team deliver this exciting new chapter in the company’s history.

“Coyne has built a class-leading reputation for delivering freight solutions in the Caspian and elsewhere based on true collaborative partnerships with its customers, and I am excited to be given the opportunity to help grow the business further.”

Coyne Airways operates to some of the world’s most difficult to reach destinations, including the Caspian, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Africa, with headquarters in London, UK and a hub in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The cargo carrier is building its network to expand its existing markets around the Caspian and to link up its operations to the Gulf and Africa.

“Our aim is to increase frequency into the Caspian and control the movement of a greater proportion of the freight on the capacity we control,” said Liana Coyne, Coyne Airways’ Chief Operating Officer, in charge of the carrier’s Dubai hub.

“We are happy to consider full or part-load capacity of carriers serving China, the Middle East, and Africa to achieve this.”
