Top Track 250

Last year more than 4.5m passengers used this airport, which was bought for a reported £2bn by infrastructure investors AimCo, Omers, Wren House and Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan. Following this investment, the airport is preparing for construction on a £350m development programme, scheduled for completion in 2021. Robert Sinclair, 51, was announced as chief executive in June, with Declan Collier, 62, stepping down from the role later this month.
