Minister for transport Eamon Ryan has announced the appointment of Rose Hynes as the chairman of the board of the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA).
"An Important Asset"
Welcoming the appointment, IAA chief executive Peter Kearney said in a statement published on the IAA's website, "The IAA looks forward to working with Ms. Hynes as the chairman of the IAA. Ms. Hynes' experience in the aviation sector including as chairman of the Shannon Group/Shannon Airport will be an important asset to the board and, indeed, to the management and staff of the IAA.
"The IAA has always been about providing a safe, high quality, customer-focused service. Ms. Hynes will now play a key role in the continued evolution of the company, particularly as we face the challenges brought about by COVID-19, for the IAA and the aviation sector. Ms. Hynes will also guide us through the important restructuring of the IAA's responsibilities, which is expected to conclude this year. I look forward to working with the new chairman to ensure we continue to maintain our position as a leading service provider in Europe."
Meanwhile, Hynes commented, "I am delighted to have been appointed by the minister for transport, Mr. Eamon Ryan TD, as the chairman of the IAA, and I look forward to working with the CEO, the board and all at the IAA."
