London Heathrow Airport (LHR) has welcomed its new CEO, Thomas Woldbye, who is optimistic about the airport’s future. Woldbye took over from former CEO John Holland-Kaye, who led the airport for over nine years, navigating both periods of growth and the challenges posed by the pandemic. Woldbye, who previously served as the CEO of Copenhagen Kastrup Airport (CPH), brings a wealth of experience in European commercial aviation to his new role.

Passenger numbers have surged from 19.4 million in 2021 to 61.6 million in 2022, with hopes of reaching pre-pandemic levels of 80 million this year. However, the airport remains mindful of the potential impact of airline fee cuts on future investments.
