Auckland Airport has appointed Scott Tasker as its new general manager of aeronautical commercial. He will be responsible for route development, tourism strategies and growing airline services to New Zealand.
Adrian Littlewood, Auckland Airport’s chief executive, said, “Scott will be responsible for our route development and tourism strategies and our focus on sustainably growing airline services to New Zealand.”
“Scott brings 21 years of experience in the travel industry to the role, including eight years working in sales for Lufthansa and Emirates – ultimately as the head of passenger sales for Emirates in New Zealand. Prior to joining Auckland Airport in 2015, Scott was the general manager for the New Zealand operations of an international travel services business.”
Speaking of his appointment, Tasker said, “The strong passenger and airline growth which Auckland Airport has experienced in recent years has helped fuel New Zealand’s tourism boom and bring real economic growth to our cities and regions. It has also helped to make travel much more affordable and provided more travel options for Kiwis.
“I look forward to leading Auckland Airport’s aeronautical commercial team as it continues to promote Auckland as a destination for new international airlines, helps existing airlines to grow their markets, and supports the amazing work of the New Zealand tourism industry.”
