In a letter to the Senedd’s Public Accounts Committee (pdf), the Economy & Transport Minister, Ken Skates (Lab, Clwyd South), confirmed that Roger Lewis’ term as Chair of Cardiff Airport will be extended until the end of May 2020.

The Chair was due to step down this month. While an unnamed successor has been selected and has subsequently accepted the post, they’re unable to take up the job until June 2020 due to current contractual obligations.

The Minister said: “In light of these circumstances I am very grateful to Roger who has kindly agreed to remain in post until 31 May 2020 in order to maintain consistency at the airport during the interim period. I have no doubt that Roger will continue to bring his focus and leadership to this important role.”
