An airport in Cambridgeshire is to expand its services to focus on commercial aviation around the clock.

The former Marshall Airport Cambridge has changed its name officially to Cambridge Airport and appointed a new director to oversee developments.

The plan is to create a leading aviation hub for the east of England.

The airport has invested in new hangars and enhanced its instrument landing system.

'Wealth of possibilities'

With 24/7 operational capability the airport will now focus on expanding its executive aviation potential and developing other niche, commercial aviation opportunities.

Archie Garden joins the staff as airport director from aviation consultants Oriens Advisors.

He said: "Cambridge Airport offers a wealth of possibilities that have yet to be exploited."

The passenger terminal is to be refurbished and the growth of regional airline routes is planned.

Operations will also focus on horse transportation, aviation training and opportunities offered by the London Olympics.
