Board of Directors

The Saint John Airport is proud to have a very dedicated and hardworking board of directors, with a broad skill set and representation from across our catchment area. There are currently 12 members on the board of directors.

In 1999, the Government of Canada transferred control and operation of the airport to Saint John Airport Inc., a self-funding, non-share, not-for-profit airport authority. The airport has many stakeholders, including local communities served, air carriers, passengers, and local businesses. In accordance with normal corporate governance best practices, airports are managed by a board of directors who provide appropriate oversight of the management team. Individuals who are appointed to the Airport’s board of directors possess a broad range of skills, business experience, and expertise. Aviation expertise is but one important skill set, however, others include engineering, legal, marketing, and financial accounting.
