Birmingham International Airport has named Mark Hattersley as its new acting finance director.
Mr Hattersley has worked at the airport since January 2000 as chief accountant, and will take over the position from Joe Kelly, who was recently made acting managing director following the death of Richard Heard during storms last month.
Airport chairman John Hudson said: "The board feels that Mark is an excellent choice to take on the position of acting finance director.
"During Mark’s seven years here at the airport he has demonstrated his knowledge and professionalism while working closely with all of the management team.
"Mark and Joe have the full support of the board and working closely with the management team will take the company forward."
Mr Hattersley previously worked for Land Rover, lives in Solihull and is married with one child.
Meanwhile, Birmingham Airport yesterday unveiled its first ever direct route to northern Cyprus. Anatolian Sky will operate the service each Monday from May 21 to October, departing at 1pm and arriving in Ecran at 8.45pm local time.
The return service departs Ecran at 7.30am, arriving in Birmingham at 11.30am.
North Cyprus, home to the Turkish Cypriot population, bills itself as "offering holiday-makers a captivating destination, with beautiful beaches, villages, undiscovered coves and bays, clear blue waters, breathtaking scenery, picturesque towns and brilliant sunshine".
Akin Koc, managing director of Anatolian Sky, said: "I am thrilled that people in and around Birmingham can now travel direct to North Cyprus, as well as enjoying unspoilt parts of Turkey and twin-centre holidays.
"Last year Anatolian Sky carried 20,000 passengers to these destinations, so I’m confident the service will be popular with Birmingham too."
Peter Vella, business development director of Birmingham International Airport, added: "We are proud to offer this completely new destination to our passengers. Passengers travelling direct to North Cyprus will benefit from a seamless journey as the aircraft touches-down in Dalaman for just 40 minutes before departing for Ecran."
