Coyne Airways recently announced that Tristan Koch joined 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.

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.
