Waterford Airport has today announced that Desmond O’Flynn is leaving the role of Airport CEO.
Mr O’Flynn, commenced the role in 2013, at a time when Aer Arann had just suspended its Waterford services and Flybe were about to withdraw theirs. A brief stint with VLM did little to improve the fortunes of the under pressure airport.
In a statement released this morning, the Board of the Airport thanked Mr O’Flynn for his hard work over the last four
years and has wished him well for the future.
“It remains the priority of the Board to secure the necessary funding to extend the runway in order to ensure that the Airport can offer air connectivity to the UK and Europe for the southeast,” the statement said. “Waterford Airport continues to maintain the Irish Coast Guard helicopter search and rescue service for the region and to provide direct access for business and corporate aircraft that underpin many key industries.”
