The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority on November 16, appointed Carl Schultz as interim Vice President for Airline Business Development, succeeding Mike Stewart, who has been named Vice President and Manager of Washington Dulles International Airport.
Schultz joined the Airports Authority in June to strategically manage the Airports Authority’s efforts to attract new air service and passengers, focusing on relationships with United Airlines — the largest carrier at Dulles International — and other Star Alliance airlines, as well as potential new airlines around the world.
Prior to joining the Airports Authority, Shultz worked as an air service development senior executive for the Houston Airport System in Texas, where he was responsible for Houston’s air service strategies in North America, Europe, Africa, Australia and the Middle East. He has also held air service development positions with the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority in Nevada and the Columbus Regional Airport Authority in Ohio. He holds a bachelor’s degree in aviation management from the Ohio State University and a master’s degree in business administration in aviation from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
Schultz and Stewart will assume their new roles in early December.
