Andrew Murray is a Senior planner with the Manchester Airports Group and is also the Airport’s representative on ‘Connect Dorset’ a sub-committee of the Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). Since coming under the ownership of MAG there have been significant developments at the airport including a new terminal building and new airlines and routes attracted.
In peak years the airport handled over 1 million passengers. It has been an eventful year for Bournemouth International Airport. It awaits with interest the Government decision on the development of a runway at Heathrow or Gatwick and the impact that may have on airports in the region. Although 2015 was a year of passenger growth for the airport and the future looks bright there have also been some disappointments. Royal Mail has withdrawn its presence and in November 2015 the Airports third largest airline FlyBE announced its withdrawal of services after only 6 months of operation.
The Chartered Institute has a policy of holding open meetings, so students and staff are welcome. Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating presentation on the operations of our local regional airport.
