Today, Monday, is the last day to apply for tickets for this month's Aviation Club lunch. The event is on Thursday (19 September) at the Institute of Directors in London. Guest speaker is Dubai Airports CEO Paul Griffiths, discussing the life and times of one of the world’s aviation hotspots.
Griffiths has spent more than 40 years in the travel and aviation industry, joining Dubai Airports as its first CEO in October 2007 with responsibility for the operation and development of Dubai International and latterly the country’s second airport, Al Maktoum International, also known as Dubai World Central (DWC).
This is destined on completion to become the world’s largest facility of its kind, with an ultimate capacity of more than 160m passengers and 12m tonnes of cargo a year.
Before moving to Dubai, Griffiths was managing director of Gatwick, having joined the then owner, the British Airports Authority (BAA), in 2004.
Before that, he spent 14 years with the Virgin Group, working closely with Sir Richard Branson as a board director at the group’s travel arm, embracing the commercial activities of Virgin Atlantic Airways and Virgin Trains.
