FetchyFox is delighted to announce Michael Minerva, former Vice President of Government and Airport Affairs at American Airlines, has joined our team of seasoned industry veterans as a strategic advisor. With nearly 30 years of aviation experience, Mike brings a wealth of insight about the airline business and airport relations.
“I am thrilled to work with the dynamic and innovative FetchyFox team because they are bringing a groundbreaking new IT e-commerce and data platform to airports around the world, and it will bring previously untapped benefits to passengers, airports, concessions, and airlines.”
Mike started his aviation career as an airline labor lawyer with FordHarrison in Atlanta. He then held executive positions in labor relations, legal, airport affairs and government affairs at US Airways and, after the 2013 merger, with American Airlines. During his tenure with American, Mike led a team tasked with managing state and local government affairs throughout the US, as well as airport relationships around the world. He and his team negotiated the airline-airport agreements that approved redevelopment programs at New York’s LaGuardia and JFK airports, Washington Reagan Airport, Chicago O’Hare International Airport and several others.
After leaving American Airlines, he started his own consulting firm, Minerva Strategic Solutions.
