Published on : Thursday, July 27, 2017

deltalogo_11431228Corneel Koster’s journey to leadership at Delta Air Lines might have begun in the forests of Europe. A native of the Netherlands, Koster enjoyed backpacking across the continent as a young man. Having lived abroad, he nurtured a passion for making connections across cultures and national boundaries.

 

Corneel Koster, Delta Air Lines S.V.P.That quest led to a post-university stint as a management trainee at KLM, and 20 years later Koster has made good on his ambition – for himself and for millions of travelers. He’s worked in aviation in continental Europe, the U.K., Mexico, Japan and Hong Kong before joining Delta in May as London-based leader of the Europe, Middle East, Africa and India region.

 

 

“It’s exciting. I’ve always wanted the opportunity to connect people, to broaden horizons and open minds, and we do that in this great industry,” Koster said. “It’s a complex business, but ultimately it’s about bringing people together. It inspires me, as it has since the beginning.”

 

 

Koster’s experience – gained at Delta partners Air France-KLM, Virgin Atlantic and, most recently, Aeromexico – gives him deep international insight at a time when Delta is continuing its mission towards becoming a fully global airline.

 

 

During a recent interview, Koster spoke about his background, his new role and what he calls Delta’s international growth journey.

 

 

“We are firmly on this exciting journey, and to continue this successful course, we need to work closely with our partners, living and breathing the spirit of cross-cultural learning and opportunity,” he said.
