Airport to establish aeronautical division

Auckland International Airport Limited (AIAL) today announced the establishment of an aeronautical division within the company. The new division will incorporate the current operations division and include aeronautical charges and revenue as well as air service route development.

Chief executive of Auckland Airport, Don Huse, says the division will place all of AIAL’s aeronautical activities within one fully-integrated business. “This move will enable AIAL to engage with our airline customers in a seamless manner on matters of service quality, supply and pricing.

“The need for this has become especially relevant given the current aeronautical pricing consultation and the substantial investments in core aviation infrastructure announced recently.”

Current general manager – operations, David Hansen, has announced his retirement. Mr Huse commented, “David has had roles covering many parts of the company’s activities over 16 years of service, in particular leading our engineering and then airport operations divisions. His contribution has been immense and David will continue to work closely with the airport company in a senior airport advisory role.”

Filling the new role of general manager – aeronautical will be Tony Gollin, currently the airport’s general manager – corporate planning and strategy. He previously worked for AIAL from 1988 to 1997 before leaving to work in London. He rejoined the company in 2004. Mr Gollin has also held senior positions in international infrastructure group Bechtel Corporation and with the New Zealand Ministry of Transport.

Robert Sinclair, chief financial officer, will assume responsibility for corporate planning and strategy and corporate affairs.

Mr Huse says, “The changes to AIAL’s organisational structure will strengthen the company’s ability to grow its aeronautical activities in a way that benefits aeronautical customers and especially the travelling public.”

These changes will take effect 1 July 2006.
