This week has seen the new CEO of London Heathrow Airport, Thomas Woldbye, start his new role, with plans to elevate the airport further into the future.
He started his role on October 18, with outgoing CEO John Holland-Kaye now relieved of his duties following the announcement of his departure earlier this year.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
London Heathrow Airport Welcomes In New CEO…
It is understood that Woldbye will oversee the airport’s multi-billion pound plan to upgrade existing facilities over the next few years.
Woldbye had this to say on his first days at London Heathrow Airport as CEO:
“The UK already has a hub airport that is the envy of much of the world.”
“As I spend my first days getting to know the colleagues and Team Heathrow partners who make it a success, I’m looking for how we can make Heathrow even better for our customers and the British economy.”
“It’s humbling to have the opportunity to take on the challenge and I’m excited to get started.”
He will continue on the legacy built by outgoing CEO John Holland-Kaye which included the following elements during his tenure:
- Transforming the airport into a premier global hub.
- Developing the plan for Heathrow expansion that secured Parliamentary approval.
- Navigating the business through COVID.
- Pushing to net-zero by 2050.
All eyes will be on Thomas Woldbye to see what ideas he can push forward as the airport continues on its successful route to post-pandemic growth.
