With a longstanding 28-year career within the global airport industry, Mr. Claude’s role as CEO was effective the first week of January

Airport International Group announced the appointment of its former Chief Operations Officer (COO), Nicolas Claude, as Chief Executive Officer (CEO), effective January 7, 2020. Mr. Claude assumes his current role in succession of Kjeld Binger, who will remain associated with the company as Senior Advisor of the Board.

Leveraging a longstanding 28-year career within the global airport industry, Mr. Claude has held a number of C-suite positions; most recently he worked as CEO of the Nuevo Pudahuel concession in Chile. In the role he was responsible for guiding the expansion of Santiago International Airport, which has crossed the 23 million- passenger milestone.

During his 2010 – 2015 tenure as COO of Airport International Group, Mr. Claude oversaw six key departments and a total of 330 employees responsible for various operations, maintenance, commercial and real estate, information technology and telecommunications, security and quality & safety functions.

Mr. Clause comments: “I am delighted to be returning to Jordan, a country I called home for five years and to the Airport International Group family, with whom I have witnessed some of the most pivotal stages of the QAIA New Terminal project.

I would like to thank my colleague, Mr. Kjeld Binger, for his exemplary leadership over the past eight years and I look forward to building on the proud achievements the team has marked since being assigned the project in 2007. We have many new plans to implement, milestones to reach and records to break and I am confident that, with the support of the Government of Jordan and the employees, partners and shareholders involved in the project, the sky is the limit.

We will continue to work together to reaffirm QAIA’s standing as the Kingdom’s prime gateway to the world for the benefit of our passengers and the Jordanian public at large.”
