Speaking to one of the staff recently they have been offered alternative, similar positions elsewhere within the airport.

So he hit the ground running it said when he started. He didn't improve things from what I can see. Airport is very quiet today.

Wonder who will be the next one on the throne? Its probably been decided at the last lodge meeting

Will the next candidate hit the ground running, or head for another airport after seeing the Peel Master Plans!

Steve was the CEO of Peel Airports, which made him Dave’s boss I believe, and in charge of DTVA unless I am mistaken? Dave was promoted in March 2018 after serving as commercial director.

CEO: Peel Airports (Management) Limited, Doncaster Sheffield & Durham Tees Valley Airports
Peel Airports Limited
August 2011 – September 2018 7 years 2 months
Doncaster, United Kingdom. Responsible for the strategic development and general management of Robin Hood Doncaster Sheffield and Durham Tees Valley Airports.



Peel H&S document which was signed by CEO Steve, and shows management layout. Note the DTV logo at the top of the page.

Any idea why Steve left Robert?

There may be some kind of accountability to Steve Gill but my understanding is David since being appointed MD reports directly to the Peel board following a breakaway from DSA. Why does any of this matter anyway?

it matters as its not a baggage handler who has left, its the Peel Airports CEO who has departed from the top job at Peel Airports Ltd. Is there something in the wind about where DTV is going, or DSA?

After all this is what Peel said when Steve was appointed. He seems to have been with Peel for a while doing other jobs prior to the CEO number, so why jump ship, or was he pushed?
Maybe Robert or Robert Hough can answer the simple question??

Quote from Peel: The company said Mr Gill had almost 30 years’ experience in the aviation industry and has extensive expertise in airport planning and management. "Steve knows Durham Tees Valley Airport well, having played a key role in the original majority acquisition of the Airport by Peel in 2003 and worked on many of the £30m improvements that have taken place at the airport since then," a spokesman said.

"During his career with Peel Airports, Steve has also held responsibility for a wide range of services including IT, property management, health and safety, corporate and social responsibility along with various outsourced service contracts.

"Steve joins Durham Tees Valley at an important time in the airport’s development and is under no illusions over the challenging times ahead, not just for the airport but the industry as a whole.

"He is, however, confident that the airport can capitalise on the tremendous support that it continues to receive both from the public and organisations across the region, despite what is currently a difficult time for the airport."

Mr Gill said: “Having been involved with the airport in other aspects of its development in recent years, I am now naturally delighted to be able to take the airport forward in this new capacity and to explore all opportunities as we try to develop the business here."

You're reading too much into it, maybe they offered him more money, he just fancied a change or he wanted to go down south where traditionally it's far more aviation rich?? Chances are nothing sinister.

The press covered Steve's departure, and the "Public comments" under the news piece appear to be what the public think of him jumping ship.

Wasn't the plan to bleed DTVA in order to bolster Doncaster?

Another summer gone..more wasted months..to be honest(hurrah say most) I’ve just about given up.Not worth posting rants,praise,potential or anything on the site.Doldrums methinks.All the hopes and promises of the diehard posters have even dried up.

prove me wrong but goodness knows what the next couple of years will bring?

A fellow enthusiast recently used the following paragraph regarding the comments under a similar aviation related newspaper article and it could not be more true:

"Don’t worry about exam grades kids....read a few comments from this post (or any) on the chronicle page and just remember these are functioning human beings who live amongst us......worrying isn’t it....."

Didn't know that Durham Tees Valley Airport had its own Twitter site until it was mentioned in the pub. Shame Steve Gill didn't update it before he left?
Robert Hough might like to update the page with news of another Masterplan number (number 4 or 5)
https://twitter.com/durhamtvairport
Any news on the new buyer, or should that be renter?

I was always impressed at how much traffic we're able to attract that is destined for Sunderland (and not just the current freight flights), I'm told it's easier to get to Sunderland from us than it is from Newcastle despite being further away due to better roads. We've had these flights before they'll dry up before much longer no doubt.

Sharklet_321, as much as is possible which is not a lot. They're always talking to airlines* but there are a lack of options, and with City, Gatwick and Heathrow all slot constrained there isn't sufficient point-to-point demand to go to Stansted, Luton or even Southend.

*Probably not at the moment due to on-going takeover efforts by the Mayor; if people think that by following the progress of this airport they know what quiet is then I suspect the next few months will make them realise they don't!
