Comair's Rademacher top airline exec

        Comair president Randy Rademacher Tuesday was named Regional Airline Executive of the Year by Commuter/Regional Airline News, an industry trade publication.

        The magazine cited him for his leadership during last spring's 89-day pilots strike that shut down the Erlanger-based regional carrier — a wholly owned subsidiary of Delta Air Lines — for more than three months and then during the airline's rapid restart and recovery.

        Mr. Rademacher dedicated the award, given out at the annual meeting of the Regional Airline Association in Nashville, Tenn., to the airline's employees, saying that “it was won by the employees who actually operate the airline and make it work so well for our customers.

        “I am grateful for the opportunity to lead a talented team of 5,000 aviation professionals.”

        An 18-year veteran of Comair, Mr. Rademacher was named president in January 2000.
