Jonathan Pollard (above) will be responsible for driving forward the airport’s airline relations, retail, restaurants and other commercial revenue streams, including car parking and property portfolios.

He was previously the Commercial Director at Luton Airport where, in the last 2 years he helped deliver significant growth in passenger volumes - partly by accelerating the introduction of larger more environmentally friendly aircraft.   He was also responsible for expanding Luton Airport’s commercial and retail space, creating a commercial strategy based upon business research and passenger insight.

Jonathan holds a BSc in Air Transport Management from Loughborough University and joined National Express Group as a graduate in 2005, going on to hold several Executive roles, including Commercial Director of the coach division business.

Stewart Wingate, Chief Executive Officer, Gatwick Airport, said: “Jonathan joins us in what are unprecedented times and his experience and success driving vital revenue streams and developing new business will be critical in helping Gatwick rebuild and grow as the airport enters a new chapter in its history”.

Jonathan Pollard, Chief Commercial Officer, Gatwick Airport said: “I’m delighted to take on this new challenge at Gatwick which is renowned for its approach to innovative commercial management.  We are inevitably experiencing difficult times, but the aviation industry has proven its resilience in the past and this will likely be no exception as long as we adapt quickly to changes in consumer behaviour and passenger processes.  I am looking forward to embracing this challenge with the Gatwick Executive and my wider team and driving forward our commercial offering.”
