Luton Airport has named its former planning and investment director Alberto Martin as the new CEO following the departure just before Christmas of Nick Barton, who has been appointed to head Birmingham Airport (see this issue).
Martin said: “Building on the strong demand from passengers and the success of our recent terminal transformation, I’m delighted to have the opportunity to lead the Luton team in establishing us as the airport of choice for accessible, easy and enjoyable air travel.”
Luton officials described Martin as “a highly experienced and well-regarded airport leader, who has successfully delivered the recently-completed £160m terminal transformation project”.
Martin has also overseen the preparation and negotiation for Luton Borough Council’s £225m Direct Air-Rail Transit (Dart), which will link the airport terminal with Luton Airport Parkway by 2021.
Before joining Luton, Martin gained 20 years’ experience in airports in executive roles across Europe, including 10 years as managing director of Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura airports.
He will now lead Luton Airport into the next phase of development following the single biggest transformation in its 80-year history and record growth in passenger numbers from 9.7m in 2014 to the present 16.5m, making it one of the fastest-growing major airports in Europe.
