Birmingham Airport has appointed Tom Screen as its new Aviation Strategy and Development Manager to help to grow the Airport’s airline and route network.
He joins Birmingham Airport from Thomson Airways where he has held the position of Aviation Planning Manager since August 2008 and will manage a team of two, reporting to the Aviation Development Director.
His main responsibilities include overseeing the generation of information to the business for budgeting and forecasting purposes, and identifying market opportunities as the Airport continues to develop and attract new carriers.
Commenting on Tom’s arrival, William Pearson, Birmingham Airport’s Aviation Development Director, said, “I’m confident that Tom will be a great addition to the team and to the business as we strive to deliver growth at the Airport and develop our route network.”
In previous roles Tom has also worked for Airport Coordination Ltd and First Choice Airways (Air 2000).
Commenting on his appointment, Tom added, “I’m delighted to be given this new role at Birmingham Airport. The next few years will be exciting times for the company with the runway extension and the development of a high speed rail link to London. Birmingham is in a great position to forge ahead as a viable alternative airport for carriers looking to expand services into the UK and I look forward to playing my part in that."
Originally from Oxford, Tom spent his formative years in Cheshire before moving to St Albans in 2008. He’s a musician, keen runner and cricketer in his spare time.
