Adelaide Airport Ltd (AAL) has appointed a new Director to its board.
AAL Chair, Rob Chapman, said Alison Webster had been appointed to the position, and would bring considerable experience to the board as a result of her extensive aviation expertise.
“Ms Webster has more than 25 years’ senior executive experience across airlines, global freight and supply chain logistics, and multi-site catering operations,” Mr Chapman said.
“Her experience will be invaluable as AAL works to re-establish South Australia’s connections with global and domestic markets following the devastating impacts of COVID-19 on the aviation industry.
“Ms Webster has held a number of senior executive roles in the Qantas Group, including more recently as the Chief Executive Officer of Qantas International Airways, and has also previously held a senior management role for British Airways.”
Ms Webster has completed a Strategic Finance Program and an Innovation Program with the Harvard Business School.
Mr Chapman thanked retiring Director, Alan Mulgrew, for his considerable expertise, experience and advice to the board over the past 14 years.
Mr Chapman said Mr Mulgrew had been a significant contributor to the aviation sector in Adelaide and throughout Australia, and had contributed to many of AAL’s successful infrastructure developments.
