Aberdeen Airport appoints new MD

Fri, 20 Aug, 2010

BAA has announced the appointment of a new managing director to take over the running of Aberdeen Airport.

Derek Provan, a veteran of the company, is scheduled to take up his new post in September.

After joining the firm in 1998 as a fire-fighter, he worked in several roles including managing airfield operations and heading up airport security.

Mr Provan praised the high standards of the airport and claimed it was a "vital" part of the local community.

He said: "I look forward to building on the good work that has already been undertaken providing great service to our passengers and our airline partners."

The former managing director of the airport Kevin Brown left his post last month in order to take up management of Edinburgh Airport.

BAA's announcement comes in the wake of a study published last month which showed Aberdeen Airport stood to contribute up to £620 million to Scotland's economy over the next three decades.
