Leeds Bradford airport (LBA) has named former Carnival UK Chief Executive David Noyes as Chair.

David, who will take up the role on April 1, has more than 35 years’ travel industry experience having previously worked in the aviation and cruise sectors.

In his role, David will oversee the execution of the airport’s infrastructure and growth strategy.

He will replace Andy Clarke who is stepping down as Chair after four years.

David said: “The airport has an exciting development agenda and I look forward to leading the creation of an outstanding airport, connecting Yorkshire to the world.”

Chief Executive Vincent Hodder thanked Andy for the ‘legacy he leaves, delivering a strong commercial outlook and returning the airport to pre-pandemic levels’.

Vincent went on to say ‘LBA is embarking on an exciting period of development as we look to enhance our passenger experience and move towards a net zero future’.

“David will be crucial in supporting us to achieve those ambitions,” he added. “We look forward to welcoming him and collaborating to make LBA the outstanding, modern regional airport our passengers deserve.”
