ASM, the world route development consultants, recently announced three senior appointments who will be joining the team over the next few months.

These appointments herald a new era for the business as ASM, the sister company of Routes and Airport Cities Conference and Exhibition, enhances its air services expertise and strategic airport management support.

Marc Gordien and Aidan Mooney will also join the team as Vice President Consulting; Marc will join next week whilst Aidan begins in the new year.  Marc comes to ASM from Sabre Airline Solutions where he has worked for over 5 years initially as Project Director and latterly as Sales Director for the Middle East & Africa driving business solutions for Airlines and Airports. Prior to that Marc held roles in Amadeus and Air France.

Aidan brings over 20 years of route development and business planning experience to the team, working for the Manchester Airport Group (MAG) one of the leading airport groups in the world.  Aidan's most recent responsibility has been Director of Aviation Development for MAG.
