Glasgow airport boss promoted
Glasgow Airport's managing director has been promoted. From January he will take charge of Scotland's three major airports.
Stephen Baxter, 40, has been appointed managing director of BAA Scotland from January 2006, after 3 years in charge at Glasgow Airport. He will be in charge of Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow airports, but will remain based in the city.
Baxter will succeed Donal Dowds, who moves to a new London-based role, heading up BAA's planning function at head office and to take charge of the expansion at Stansted. Mr Baxter said: 'I am excited to be taking on the challenge of running Scotland's key airports at such an interesting time for the business and for aviation in Scotland.'
'We face many varied challenges in the months and years ahead and I am confident that we have the right team in place to deliver a great service to the public.'
The airport recently unveiled a 25-year-masterplan which aims to turn Glasgow into
Scotland's national hub, capable of handling 24 million passengers a year. BAA will now launch a search for a new managing director for Glasgow Airport.
