Nick Barton said, "I am delighted to be the new Managing Director of Stansted Airport. It is a privilege to be part of this fantastic airport, working with staff who provide an excellent service to our customers. 2011 is a showcase year for us: we will be celebrating our 20th birthday in the spring, and later in the year we will see brand new trains in service on the Stansted Express as we head towards 2012.
"My immediate focus is ensuring Stansted continues to be prepared for the on-going cold weather. We are striving to keep disruption to an absolute minimum for our passengers and, where possible, have been assisting other airports, taking in diverted planes to help people reach their destinations."
