A new face at Southend Airport is Bernard Lavelle – previously sales director at London City.
Bernard joins the senior management team as aviation business development director. His career at London City Airport saw passenger numbers rise from 100,000 when he first joined in 1988 to 4.5m when he left at the end of 2017.
He is excited regarding the airport’s prospects. “It’s not hard to see the huge potential for London Southend. With one million passengers a year, the plan is to double that number over the next 12 months. Ultimately, the airport has capacity for ten million which would go some way in alleviating the dire shortage of space in the south east.
“This is a terrific opportunity for me to make a difference, and ensure that airlines understand and take advantage of what London Southend has to offer passengers – comfort, speed of access, few queues and a friendly experience.”
