Norwich Airport hosted the recent Norwich Chamber Council meeting and took the opportunity to outline some of their plans for the future.

Richard Pace, Managing Director for Norwich Airport noted some of the key areas of success from the past year: the airport had catered for 524,000 passengers; 40,000 aircraft movements; had 25 direct flight destinations; and provided approximately 1,000 people with employment on site – 260 being directly employed by Norwich Airport.

Mr Pace gave an overview of their 30 year Masterplan, which is currently being drafted.  This will include: upgrades to airport infrastructure; increases in passenger growth; and more holiday destinations; as well as their aspirations to take advantage of the completion of the NDR.  There will be an opportunity to review the Norwich Airport Masterplan when it goes out for consultation later in the year.

The Norwich Chamber Council meeting was chaired by the newly appointed Chair, Paul McCarthy, General Manager of Intu Chapelfield.
