Gerhard Schroeder, the chairman of the Board of Directors of Budapest Airport said: ”The shareholders and the entire management and staff of Budapest Airport are grateful for Chris Dinsdale’s commitment and leadership in the past years. Especially his dedication, ensuring the company’s stability during the pandemic and preparing the airport for the restart of aviation after COVID was outstanding.
