News that Chas 'n' Dave Margate International Airport's cherubic chief executive Matt Clarke is quitting must surely put a spanner in the works for the landing strip's expansion plans. Word is that the place is also without a business development manager these days too.
Rather than appoint a replacement for the Kiwi Kid, the airport's owners Infratil have asked Tom Wilson to act as boss. Mr Wilson is described as 'Chief Executive of Infratil Airports Europe' which means, after the sale of Lubeck in Germany last year, just Prestwick and Manston.
Masterplan Matt is apparently back off to his homeland to take up another position at Infratil, which used the Lubeck dosh to buy Shell's forecourt business in NZ. Let's hope he'll be doing more than pumping gas and selling meat pies. Anyway, I'm sure the No Night Flights people will have a whip round to give him a good send-off!
