Heathrow appoints Luke Bugeja to its Board


Heathrow Airport Holdings Ltd has today announced that Luke Bugeja will join the airport's Board as a Non-Executive Director.


Mr Bugeja has over 30-years' experience in the aviation industry. He previously held senior positions at Changi Airports International in Singapore, as well as Board positions at London City, Brussels, Copenhagen and Bristol airports. He also spent 16 years working in the airline business at Qantas and Virgin Blue in Australia. His breadth of experience across the entire aviation value chain - including operations, commercial and financial and investment - will be a welcome addition to the Heathrow Board and help the airport navigate the current COVID-19 crisis while remaining focused on providing excellent service and value for money to passengers. 


Mr Bugeja will succeed Jorge Gil who is stepping down from the Board after nine years of service. Mr Gil has been instrumental in leading Heathrow's £12 billion transformation programme into one of the world's leading airports and we thank him for his immense contribution.


Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye said: 


"We're delighted to welcome Luke to the Heathrow Board. The breadth of his experience across the aviation industry will help Heathrow to overcome and rebuild from the COVID-19 pandemic. I'd like to also take the opportunity to extend a personal thanks to Jorge for his years of dedicated service to Heathrow. His expertise and valued counsel over the past decade have been critical in transforming Heathrow into one of the world's leading airports, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours."
