Heathrow Airport boss John Holland-Kaye is to leave his role this year.
The UK’s busiest airport announced that Mr Holland-Kaye, who has been chief executive for nine years, will remain in post until a successor is appointed.
Mr Holland-Kaye played a key role in Heathrow securing parliamentary approval for its third runway scheme, and has been a prominent representative of the aviation industry during the coronavirus pandemic.
“During the past nine years he has worked tirelessly and collaboratively with shareholders, ministers, airlines and other stakeholders to ensure the country can be proud of its front door.
“The board would like to put on record our gratitude to John for his dedication and commitment to Heathrow throughout his tenure as CEO.”
