EuroAirport announces that Jürg Rämi, Director, has decided to take retirement as of 31 July 2015


After more than twelve years of successful service at EuroAirport, Jürg Rämi has decided to withdraw from his management activities. Shortly after his 60th birthday, he wishes to devote more time to his family and personal interests.
At the same time, and taking into account EuroAirport’s binational status, Vincent Devauchelle, Deputy Director, will also be leaving the airport as of 30 June 2015. Vincent Devauchelle has held this position at EuroAirport with much success for almost 13 years.
Today, EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg is well equipped for the future, very profitable and almost debt-free. In the course of the last twelve years, Jürg Rämi and Vincent Devauchelle have successfully concluded a number of significant projects which have improved the infrastructure of the binational airport site. These include the development of the Zone 6 bis into a world-renowned centre of excellence for aircraft refurbishment and maintenance as well as the commissioning of the new Cargo Terminal, which is perfectly suited to the needs of the regional pharmaceutical industry thanks to its ultra-modern temperature-controlled infrastructure.
Between 2002 and 2014, the number of passengers rose from three million to 6.5 million, which is an absolute record for EuroAirport. At the end of 2014, more than 6,000 people were working on the airport site.
Today, EuroAirport offers direct scheduled or charter flights to over 100 destinations. More than 25 airlines operate to and from the airport. Thanks to the strong presence of airlines affiliated to the Star Alliance, oneworld or SkyTeam alliances, EuroAirport offers several intercontinental flights daily via the major European hubs of Amsterdam, Barcelona, Brussels, Frankfurt, Istanbul, London, Munich, Paris and Vienna.
In the freight sector, EuroAirport is served by the four biggest express freight providers: DHL, FedEx, TNT and UPS.
In terms of full freighter business, five key airlines now meet the needs of regional exporters located near the airport: ABC Airlines to Moscow, Emirates SkyCargo to Dubai, Korean Air to Seoul, LAN CARGO to Sao Paolo (Guarulhos), Buenos Aires and Santiago de Chile and Qatar Airways to Doha.
EuroAirport’s Board of Directors sincerely thanks Jürg Rämi and Vincent Devauchelle for their commitment and contribution to the success of the airport’s projects. To ensure continuity in the management of EuroAirport, it will begin the process of recruiting successors as soon as possible.
