Edmond, a former Board member of ACL, brings 20 years’ aviation industry experience to the role, including expertise in airline regulatory affairs for Virgin Atlantic and British Airways. A former British diplomat for 11 years with postings in India and China, Edmond more recently served on Virgin Atlantic’s leadership team as Commercial Director, responsible among other things for network and schedule planning 
 
In his new role he will also call on his varied consultancy work advising airlines, airports and aircraft manufacturers on network, strategy and regulatory topics.  He has led studies on how to maximise airport efficiency and on slot allocation methods.
 
Edmond has highlighted his top three priorities in his new CEO role: “I am looking forward to promoting excellence in schedule coordination, delivering insightful, pro-active solutions. I will, with a fine team, be building on ACL’s core UK business to offer value-added coordination to airports across the world.”
 
The third pillar is a commitment to keep ACL “at the forefront of co-ordination; increasing our use of technology and working with a range of partners and industry associations to achieve the best outcomes at constrained airports,“ he added.
 
“We are delighted to welcome Edmond, with his fine pedigree of industry experience, to this enhanced new role of CEO,“ said ACL Board Chairman Jeff Halliwell. This senior and important appointment is a major boost for us.“  In confirming Edmond‘s appointment he also acknowledged the excellent contribution delivered by Mike Robinson, who was interim managing director following the departure of Chris Bosworth in April this year.

ACL is the world’s first independent slot coordinator headquartered in Staines,  near London Heathrow Airport.  It supports 39 airports worldwide, including 24 London and regional airports in the UK; Dublin, Cork and Shannon in the Republic of Ireland; five airports in New Zealand; Dubai International and Dubai World Central; Poland’s Poznan and Warsaw Airports, Luxembourg Airport and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.  Last month ACL announced the addition of Vilnius Airport, Lithuania, following a competitive bid.
