Last year was the airport’s busiest ever in terms of passenger numbers, new business and investment, with long-haul passenger traffic up almost 90%.

Sir John Elvidge, Chairman of Edinburgh Airport, said: “This award is thoroughly well-deserved and we’re proud to have a Chief Executive that is so committed to his role and to the people he works with.

“From rolling up his sleeves in the check-in hall on one of our busiest days ever, to talking with passengers directly about their experience, the energy Gordon exudes is infectious.”
