Since last month Cambridge Airport has new Director - Kevan Craske. He has full responsibility for airport operations, air traffic services and fire and security, having been in post on an interim basis since the spring. Let us present you some points of his plans to increase business at the airport. 

Among his initiatives are major upgrades to the airport’s navigational aids and a high profile marketing campaign to help attract more executive and light aviation customers. He’s been with Marshall since March 2010 and is seen as an industry heavyweight, with a track record for business improvement and strategic growth.

Kevan explains: “The airport is an integral part of the Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group’s business,providing access for our global customers to fly in their aircraft for maintenance and repair.

“However, that really is only half the story, we have a lot to offer as an airport and we are fully committed to growing our business and leisure traffic. It’s really important that, despite the plans to relocate our Aerospaceand Defence business by 2030, people understand that Cambridge airport is very much open for business.

“Our proximity to the city centre, and to so many of the UK’s leading technology companies, as well asconvenient transport links to London, provides us with a fantastic opportunity to grow our business traffic.”

Since joining Marshall, Kevan has held posts as Director of Strategy, Managing Director for Marshall Aviation Services in Birmingham and Broughton, Marshall Aerospace Australia and also Head of Finance and Business.
