Posted 6 June 2017 · Add Comment

Bristol Airport has appointed Nigel Scott to the newly created position of Business Development Director.



Previously Sales and Marketing Director with cleaning technology company, Kärcher and a former European Marketing Director for Dyson, Nigel brings a wealth of international business experience to the new role which will be instrumental in raising Bristol Airport’s profile as the major gateway for the South West of the UK.  
 
As Business Development Director, Nigel will develop new opportunities, strengthen marketing capabilities and partnerships, and enhance Bristol Airport’s brand in the South West and beyond. The appointment comes as the Airport celebrates 60 years of flying from its current site and begins work on a long-term vision for the future.
 
Robert Sinclair, Chief Executive Officer at Bristol Airport, said: “We are delighted to welcome Nigel to the team.  He joins Bristol Airport at an exciting time, with passenger numbers and customer satisfaction ratings at record levels, and a range of new customer facilities in place across the Airport site.  Nigel’s appointment will help us to build on this platform as we work towards our objective of becoming a world-class regional airport.” 
 
Nigel Scott said: “As a resident of the South West, I understand the important role Bristol Airport plays in connecting the region with the world.  I look forward to using the insight and experience gained working with major global brands to further enhance the Airport’s profile and reputation with customers, business partners and other stakeholders.”
 
Completion of a second major terminal extension earlier this year took investment at Bristol Airport since 2010 to more than £160 million.  Other recent developments include a £2.3 million upgrade of the immigration hall, the opening of a first on-site hotel, and a new customer reception centre for the Silver Zone car park. 
 
The route network available from Bristol Airport is also growing, with direct flights to more than 120 destinations and frequent daily services to major hubs including Amsterdam, Brussels, Dublin and Frankfurt.   Earlier this month, Thomson Airways commenced flights to Florida and Mexico using the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, highlighting the scope for more direct long-haul destinations in future.
 
Bristol Airport has been ranked number one in the UK by the customer satisfaction benchmarking programme, Airport Service Quality (ASQ), for the last three quarters running.
