Liverpool John Lennon Airports (LJLA) director of air service development will highlight the importance of North Wales businesses to the airports strategy at a business event in Conwy.
Mark Povall will discuss the airport’s relationship with North Wales and the plans focusing on rail and road links to the region at the joint Institute of Directors (IoD) and North Wales Business Club breakfast.
Mark has 20 years’ experience in the airport industry, with previous positions at Abu Dhabi Airports Company and Brussels Airport. His role at LJLA involves attracting more air carriers to the airport to drive its growth.
