Kenya-based Phoenix Aviation appoints Fritz Strahammer as COO


Phoenix Aviation, a private executive air charter company based in Nairobi, is proud to announce the appointment of Fritz Strahammer as Chief Operations Officer effective October 2012.

Fritz brings to this role a wealth of experience with almost four decades working in the field of aviation. As a Captain and Instructor for Lauda Air/Austrian Airlines on the Boeing B737, B767 and B777, he rose to the position of Director of Flight Operations, a position he held for 15 years. The merger of Lauda Air and Austrian Airlines was one of the many projects under his leadership. 

He worked as a pilot at Nairobi’s Wilson Airport for approximately ten years before joining Lauda Air (1976-1986); four of which were for AMREF Flying Doctors, a long-time partner with Phoenix Aviation.

Fritz’s extensive training and experience will build on the reputation for excellence in operations, safety and customer service for which Phoenix is renown in the Eastern African region.
