MD to Leave Airport

Jamie Christon has lead the airport through a period of change and development

After four years at Exeter Airport, the Managing Director Jamie Christon is leaving the company to further his career within another travel sector outside Devon.

Jamie, who will be leaving at the end of September, joined the company as Commercial Director and became Managing Director in January 2009 after one year as deputy MD, has lead the airport through a period of change and development . He will remain at the forefront of airport operations during the next few months and, in order to ensure business continuity into 2012 and beyond, he will be assisting the airport’s owner Regional and City Airports in appointing a successor.

John Spooner, Chairman of Exeter and Devon Airport Limited said: “I am grateful to Jamie for leading the airport through what have been difficult times within the aviation industry. His sound management has ensured the airport has remained commercially focussed and delivered growth, especially in the charter market over the last few years.”

Jamie Christon commented; “I have very much enjoyed working with the team at Exeter Airport. I am leaving the area when Exeter especially is developing into a first class city in which to live and work and I will be keeping a close interest in its future. I will be sad to leave Exeter, Devon and the airport and wish all I have worked with the very best of success.”
