Nick Barton appointed at Luton

As predicted by Business Travel News  (see BTN 29 September)  Luton Airport has announced the appointment of Nick Barton as Chief Executive. 

Upon Nick’s arrival at the end of the year, current Executive Chairman Clive Condie will revert to Chairman of the Board.
Barton, currently Chief Executive of a leading property asset management company, will join the airport as it embarks on an ambitious £100m transformation plan to increase annual passenger numbers from 10m to 18m by 2026.  Starting in early 2015 the airport will see significant investment in both remodelling the existing terminal building and improving transport access. This will not only increase capacity, but also simplify the passenger journey both to and through the airport.
Barton previously worked for eight years at Stansted Airport in a variety of executive roles, including Managing Director.
Commenting on the announcement Nick Barton said: “The aviation sector has long known about the huge potential at London Luton, with a convenient location, strong demand from passengers and great transport links to London and beyond.  The investment and development plans already in place will enable us to deliver on this potential.  I’m incredibly excited to have the opportunity to lead the team as we create the convenient, friendly modern airport that passengers want at London Luton."  www.london-luton.co.uk
