New chairman for London City Airport

The former chairman of High Speed 1 (HS1), Rob Holden, has been appointed the new chairman of London City Airport (LCY) with immediate effect as the facility continues its £500m development programme and heads for a record 4.7m passengers this year.

In addition to his previous experience in delivering transport and infrastructure projects at HS1, Holden is also a former chairman of Eurostar UK Ltd and spent two years as CEO of Crossrail.

He replaces Sir Terry Morgan, who stepped down as LCY chairman in September to become chairman of HS2 (BTN 3 September).

Holden said: “The investment in LCY is a huge vote of confidence, not only in the airport’s future, but also in London’s and the development programme, which is already under way, will make an already great airport even better.”

Airport CEO Robert Sinclair added: “Rob is hugely respected in the transport and infrastructure sectors, as well as across Whitehall.

“His experience will be an invaluable asset for London City Airport as we take forward our development programme, improve surface access, welcome more passengers and airlines and plan for our long-term future.”

The development programme, completing in 2022, will provide eight new aircraft stands, a full-length parallel taxiway and an enlarged passenger terminal.
