Her knowledge and experience will be a major addition to the airport and to Swedavia. Our ambition is to continue developing Malmö Airport as an important regional airport that contributes to access in southern Sweden and to continue driving our climate change work,” says Susanne Norman, director of regional airports at Swedavia.

Karin Öhrström has worked for more than 20 years at the energy services provider E.ON, where she as had various management positions and duties in Sweden but also in Germany. She will succeed Peter Weinhandl, who has been the airport director since 2012 and will retire in September this year.

Swedavia has an inspiring social remit, a clear customer focus and wants to lead the way in areas that are important to me.

I am really looking forward to taking on my new duties together with all the employees at Malmö Airport,” says Karin Öhrström.
