Farnborough Airport’s new boss

One of London’s major dedicated business aviation airports, Farnborough, has officially introduced its new CEO.

Simon Geere has joined from Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA), bringing with him a wealth of experience, with over 25 years in aviation and airport leadership roles.

Formerly holding both Board positions and senior roles across several UK and European Airports, Simon is also currently a Board Member of AGS Airport Group which includes Aberdeen, Glasgow and Southampton Airports.

While commercial aviation has been devastated by the impact of Covid-19, the business aviation sector has seen an increase in demand over the past year and is expected to bounce back swiftly once travel resumes.

He sees a bright future for the executive aviation enclave situated across the runway to the exhibition site with its own access to the M3.

“As international borders re-open, Farnborough Airport is looking forward to welcoming its customers back. We recognise that for many of our customers, business aviation is the only practical way of connecting internationally. In the coming years business aviation will be at the forefront of driving the UK’s economic recovery and supporting its post-Brexit global trade ambitions. International connectivity is fundamental to a prosperous and outwardly facing economy,” said Geere.
