In a meeting on 15 December 2010, the Supervisory Board of Flughafen Wien AG dealt with the draft report on the terminal extension VIE-Skylink that was prepared by the Austrian Federal Accounting Office. In the opinion of the Supervisory Board, the members of the Management Board did not violate any provisions of stock corporation law or criminal law.
Notwithstanding this conclusion, the Supervisory Board decided in favour of a change in the organisation of Flughafen Wien AG. The following was approved as a first step: Herbert Kaufmann will resign from the Management Board as of 31 December 2010 by mutual agreement. The chairman of the Supervisory Board, Christoph Herbst, was appointed chairman of the Management Board for a term of office from 1 January 2011 to 31 December 2011. His position as chairman of the Supervisory Board will be suspended during this time, and the respective responsibilities will be taken over by the current vice-chairman Karl Samstag. Management Board members Ernest Gabmann and Gerhard Schmid will remain in their positions up to 31 December 2011.
