Ole Dupont Christiansen
I have in total 29 years of experience within forwarding and 19 years within the aviation industry. 10 of those years were in the senior management of an airline with the responsibility for operations, charter sales and scheduled services to basically the day-to-day operation of an airline. Further I was heavily involved in ACMI contracts all over the globe. My many years within the industry have given me a good background and knowledge base and have brought me from Northern Siberia and Greenland to The Middle East and Africa. I have been involved in airlifts for UN in the Balkans and NATO in Afghanistan and Iraq.
I am an all-round broker but my field of expertise is within the passenger and VIP segment and especially with government transports. I love flying and the smell of jet fuel and the fact that everyday brings a new unexpected challenge which my colleagues and I together can solve pulling on our different fields of expertise and get the job done for our clients. Even though I have almost 2 decades within aviation I am still learning every day to the benefit of our customers.

I have been working within the aviation industry for the last 18 years. I started back in 1999 in Billund Airport, where I learned the inside of cargo aircrafts, as it was at that time the relief flights to Afghanistan started up on a regular basis. With the airport I also got the insight of weight & balance of aircrafts, and was a load controller for several of the biggest integrators under my employment with the airport.
In 2005 I was headhunted to work for a well-established broker firm in Billund. From that point on and until now, I have worked for different brokers and freight forwarders in Denmark latest 2,5 years as Section Manager for the charter department of a major forwarder. I have since my start in the industry worked with the biggest cargo aircraft to the smallest ones, and gained special experience within the live animal movements by air among others. In 2015 I was given a unique opportunity to be part of a new era, the birth of BLACKBIRD, and being a part of shaping this ambitious and promising project. The rest is history.
I have been working in project freight forwarding in a major Danish based international forwarding company since 2007. I started my air charter career in 2008 in the same company. In the period 2008 till 2014 I was working as air charter consultant, with responsibility for the government contracts varying from army flights with soldiers, resupplies to the “front line” and sensitive shipments of classified equipment on to flights with high profiled VIPs as well as operations for emergency disaster management agencies. I also did a lot of flights for different commercial clients in support of the oil, gas and mining industry, automotive industry – anything big and urgent I have been involved in the movement of.
In 2014 I was promoted to Business Development and Sales Manager, and my responsibility changed to developing the product, and getting a more international focus in order to get a streamlined procedure in the way of thinking the product internally in the company. This was a great challenge where I had to be persistent and re-think the way we wanted to view ourselves in the industry. 2015 I was handpicked by BLACKBIRD as Sales & Development Manager and will make sure the business stays on the right track, and will keep expanding the client list.

SALES & OPERATION
From 2011 till 2015 I was working abroad for different Danish leisure tour operators. My career took me to many locations with different history and heritage. This gave me a good cultural insight and understanding of differences between people and countries. Due to my persistence and commitment I started up new locations, became destination manager and had a lot of administrative responsibilities that built on my dutiful and thorough character.
Upon returning to Denmark I wanted to continue in an international atmosphere. The natural next step was working in the office for one of the tour operators. This paved the way into an office position. When I saw BLACKBIRD was hiring , I was sure this would give me what I was searching for.
I’m a quick learner and thrive in a hectic environment, so I’m ready to take the challenges coming my way.
For me the best way to travel is flying. It is fast, convenient, and brings the world closer. I want to promote this view to all BLACKBIRD clients and present the best solutions making sure they receive first class service travelling to their favourite destinations.
