Aron Mayberg

Aron Mayberg

Ukrainian businessman. Chairman of the Supervisory Board and co-owner of Ukraine International Airlines. Honorary Consul of Ukraine in Haifa.

Since 1982, Mayberg worked in the Chernivtsi Auto Maintenance Association as a master, a chief engineer, and a head of production and dispatching department.

Since 1990, he is a citizen of Israel.

In Israel, he set up a travel business.

In the early 1990s, there were no direct flights from the USSR: all flights were made via Bucharest, Budapest, and Warsaw. Direct flights from Moscow were in demand. That was when Aron Mayberg talked with Leonid Pogrebnyak (at that time, CEO of the Ukrainian Civil Aviation Association) about the idea of launching commercial flights. The first flight Kiev — Tel Aviv happened on August 24, 1992 on the Ukrainian Airlines with Tu-154.

 In 1994, Mayberg started to work as CEO of Aerosvit Airlines, where he worked for 15 years and was one of its shareholders. From 2008 to 2009, he headed the Aerosvit Supervisory Board.

At the end of 2009, the businessman sold his shares in Aerosvit, and two years later, he headed the board of directors at UIA.
