What is your favorite New York airport improvement over the past few years?
I am an aviation man, so it must be an airport! Although JFK’s New Terminal One development just recently got underway, I am proud Ferrovial Airports is part of the consortium delivering a world-class global gateway to the New York metropolitan area, setting standards for design and service through innovative, stress-free, passenger processing, immersive retail and dining experiences, and an iconic architecture and art program. The terminal improvement will have benefits for generations to come.
Tell us about your best flying experience…
With a career in aviation that spans over three decades, I have had the privilege of traveling around the world, logging well over 2 million miles, and flying on countless airlines to countless countries. Given this, it’s literally impossible for me to pinpoint my best flying experience, but I can say with conviction that the people who crew and maintain the aircraft are some of the most dedicated, caring, and passionate people I have encountered.
What has been your favorite travel adventure?
My favorite travel adventure was a trip that I took with my family to New Zealand, just a few months before covid hit. We spent almost two weeks traveling both islands and were amazed by the beauty of the landscape and the welcoming of the people. A trip we will not soon forget.
What are the most important items that you pack for a trip?
Over the years, I have learned the benefit of packing everything in a carry-on. Normally I pack two suits, three white shirts, running shorts, running shoes, a computer, a mobile phone, a mobile phone charger; and an electrical converter.
