Sinclair for London City

Bristol Airport CEO Robert Sinclair has been appointed CEO of London City Airport. He takes over on 30 October, within days of the 30th anniversary of the airport’s official opening by the Queen on 5 November 1987.

Sinclair, a New Zealander, replaces Declan Collier, who is stepping down. He has been CEO at Bristol since 2008, during which time Bristol Airport has seen record growth in passenger numbers and profitability and successfully delivered a £160m development programme.

A qualified chartered accountant and solicitor, Sinclair was chief financial officer at Auckland International Airport and before that at UBS investment banking for 10 years before joining Bristol.

He said: “London City Airport plays a vital role in connecting Britain, particularly its business community, globally. Through the City Airport Development Programme it will be able to serve 6.5m passengers a year, and 111,000 flight movements by 2025 – adding much needed aviation capacity at a time when Britain needs it most.”

London City Airport chairman Sir Terry Morgan added: “I have no doubt the experience Robert brings from his time at Bristol Airport and Auckland Airport before that will be very important in this next stage of London City Airport’s success story.”
