Langosch, 34, has held various positions on AIDA ships over the past 10 years and worked in the container shipping sector prior.
'I’m proud to work at a company that promotes the careers of young women and that has made it possible for me pursue my dream profession,' Langosch said. 'I look forward to my new role as captain on board AIDAsol and am aware of the great responsibility.'
Born in Osterode/Harz, Langosch grew up in Herborn in Hesse. Sailing was her first introduction to seafaring. She completed her nautical science studies in Leer. During her subsequent study program in logistics, Langosch worked for a container shipping company in Oakland (New Zealand) and for the EU parliament in Brussels. Her first nautical internship was on a container ship.
AIDAsol currently travels between the Canary Islands and Madeira. On March 25, Langosch will be navigating the ship to Hamburg. From there, AIDAsol will depart on April 7 for Northern Europe and Norway.
AIDA Cruises currently employs 14 female nautical officers on board. With tailored, collaborative training and a dual study program in partnership with the University of Wismar, the line offers an innovative educational concept for nautical science in Warnemünde.
