By Staff Reports on April 16, 2014

Liana Coyne has become COO of Coyne Airways.

After seven months as managing director of Coyne Airways, John Batten is leaving.

Coyne Airways appointed Liana Coyne as COO as part of the restructure that sees Batten leave the company.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank John for his contribution to Coyne Airways and working on this assignment to restructure the company. We wish him well for the future,” Larry Coyne, CEO, said.

Batten left his previous position at Swissport International on Aug. 31, 2013, as executive vice president cargo services and member of the group executive management. He began his job at Coyne Airways in September 2013.

Liana, who is Larry's daughter, has been a director at Coyne Airways since 2010 and will head up five new market-focused divisions, including Iraq, the Caspian and Central Asia, Afghanistan, Africa and contract logistics. She is a graduate of Oxford University. She worked for international law firm Baker & McKenzie in both their London and Hong Kong offices for nearly six years prior to joining the family business.
