David Stewart has over 30 years’ experience in airport master planning, terminal area planning and design on major international airport projects in North America, Asia, Australia, the Middle East and Europe. He has been responsible for the management of a wide range of airport projects from specialised studies for component infrastructure to world-class airport “mega-projects”.
As Head of Airport Development for IATA, David is responsible for the Association’s interface with airports world-wide as they undertake major expansion and “green field” developments. IATA’s main activities include professional contributions to major airport projects, ensuring that the aviation industry receives value for money for the investments being made in airport infrastructure and that the airline community and airports’ business development strategies are aligned and mutually supportive.
David’s familiarity with both planning and operation of airports from the perspective of the airline community, the airport owner/operator and as a professional consultant has provided him with a unique perspective on Airport Development as it influences and potentially enhances the “Passenger Journey”.
