About Titus Johnson
Titus Johnson started his Air Transport career in Australia with Australian Airlines in 1991 and later joined London City Airport marketing the Airport to both passengers and Airlines.
In 1995 after a meeting with an Airline owner in Antwerp Belgium and a commitment to build the Airline at London City Airport, Titus joined VLM Airlines. Over the following 10 years Titus held a number of senior commercial roles reporting into the CEO and Chairman and played an integral part in developing the Airlines expansion into the UK domestic and European markets, enabling VLM to become consecutively profitable and the largest slot holder at London City Airport prior to its sale to the Air France / KLM Group.
He then joined the travel technology company Sabre as an Airline Director responsible for European Airlines including British Airways, one of Sabre’s most significant global customers.
Titus joined Air Berlin in 2006 as their Country Manager for the UK and Ireland, and was promoted to Vice President Sales and Marketing Americas in 2012, moved to the USA, helped create Air Berlin America’s Inc and led the Airline during their very fast and significant long haul expansion into the Americas markets. In that time Air Berlin developed from a seasonal transatlantic leisure operator to a significant year round, Oneworld allianced Airline with a fully flat-bed business class product serving key US East, Midwest and West Coast markets with double daily services. Air Berlin’s transatlantic operation was their most profitable segment – enabled and supported by the North American channel distribution strategy implemented from 2012 to 2014, which provided significant point of sale share in US$ flows and intakes.
A similar strategy was implemented when Titus joined Thomas Cook Group Airlines in 2015 as their Vice President North America and Caribbean with the responsibility to grow Condor Airlines market share and revenues and develop the new Thomas Cook Airlines operation and brand in the Americas. From 2015 to February 2017, eleven new North American and Caribbean gateways/markets were successfully marketed and developed.

Titus’s deep knowledge of the Airline distribution value chain is very valuable in building WOW’s distribution network in North America and India, formulating and evaluating different partnership options and negotiating agreements which successfully align incentives between WOW and its partners. He has proved himself as a strong and self driven contributor with the ability to drive matters to a conclusion with limited senior level input. He shows good communication capabilities during negotiations with 3rd parties and internally at WOW across all levels.
