Tim Snook is determined to make a difference.

London Biggin Hill airport has appointed Tim Snook as its new sustainability and environment specialist. Snook will report to the airport's head of corporate social responsibility and sustainability Colin Hitchins. His appointment demonstrates London Biggin Hill's continued work towards becoming sustainable and achieving carbon neutral status by 2029, in accordance with the ACI Europe Airport Carbon Accreditation scheme.

Snook has a passion for the environment and sustainability. This has led him to pursue a career in the aviation industry as he believes that it has great potential in being an avenue in which to enact meaningful positive environmental change.

Colin Hitchins says: “I am delighted to welcome Tim, who will spearhead several initiatives that will assist us in reaching our vision for the airport's future and ensure we continue London Biggin Hill airport's passion and commitment to developing the airport in an environmentally sustainable way.”

Snook adds: “I am very much looking forward to working for the fastest growing business aviation airport in the UK, and one that that has committed to integrate sustainability and the environment into its business. The role is a unique opportunity to ensure future development projects and activities at the airport continue to be done in a sustainable manner.”

In March, Biggin Hill expanded its fuel services with the addition of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), supplied by Air BP. The dedicated business aviation airport was the first in London to offer Air BP's low carbon renewable fuel, which is produced from waste and residue products and is a blend comprising just over one third SAF and two thirds traditional jet fuel.
