Exeter Airport chief announces departure

Exeter airport managing director Jamie Christon is leaving the company after four years “to further his career within another sector” outside Devon.

He is to leave in September but will assist owner Regional and City Airports, which bought the airport for £60 million from Devon County Council in 2007, in appointing a successor.

Christon said: “I will be sad to leave the airport, Exeter and Devon and wish all I have worked with the very best of success. I am leaving when Devon and Exeter especially is developing into becoming a first class city to live and work and visit and will look forward to keeping a close interest in its future.”

Exeter and Devon Airport chairman John Spooner said: “I am grateful to Jamie for leading the airport through what have been very difficult times within the aviation business. Jamie’s sound management has ensured the airport has remained commercially focused and delivered growth, especially in the charter market over the last few years.”
