Cardiff Airport announces appointment of new CEO

8-Apr-2013 12:38 PM

UK's Cardiff Airport announced (05-Apr-2013) the appointment of a new CEO, Jon Horne, following its acquisition by the Welsh Government. Mr Horne was managing director at Cardiff Airport from 2001 to 2007 and has previously held senior positions at London City Airport and Sheffield City Airport. He returns to Cardiff Airport from being a partner in Airport Investment and Enterprise LLP. In his new role, Mr Horne will lead the airport team in managing the business and will oversee the development and delivery of the Airport’s business plan. Mr Horne said: “I recognise the task will not be an easy one, nor will it happen overnight, but I will not spare any effort in addressing the challenges ahead. Some plans are already in place and others will be developed over the coming weeks and months, but we shall also be listening to what people want from their airport, what businesses want and understanding how this can be most successfully delivered. The potential clearly still exists for Cardiff Airport to play a leading role in the future economic success of Wales and also to deliver the air services and destinations that will attract back those passengers who currently have to fly from airports outside Wales.” [more - original PR]
