Andrew Walters executive
chairman of Biggin Hill has welcomed Jenny to the new appointment and says that
she will bring new ideas and fresh thinking to plans for the management and at
a key time for the future development of the airport.
“Jenny’s previous career in
aviation has spanned both product and operational roles for airlines and
airports at increasingly senior executive levels, placing her in an ideal
position to lead this historic South
at an important time in its commercial development” he said.
Previously, Jenny was in the
Middle East with Dubai
and Emirates Airline and welcomes the complete change of environment and the
opportunities that lie ahead at Biggin Hill.
“It is an honour to pick up the baton from Peter
Lonergan and, together with the experienced management team at Biggin Hill,
guide it through the next important stages.
I am humbled by its distinguished past and excited for its promising
future. The London Olympic Games of 2012
is going to be the event of the decade and I am fortunate to be joining as we
begin to develop our operational plans to achieve a full and complete share of
the logistical support for the Games” she said.
“These are delicate times
for the aviation industry as a whole and business aviation needs every support
to weather the storm of recession.
Competition is growing and customers are sophisticated in their
demands. This segment contributes £1.4 billion annually to the UK
economy and its value must be fully recognised. We are one of the leading countries in
Europe for business aviation and London Biggin Hill plays a unique role in
that, being located so close to central London whilst still having the capacity
to absorb the growth” she said.
“There is great potential in
the emerging world markets which I believe will have a strong influence over
how our industry will look in ten years time” said Ms Munro.
