A Message from the Airport Manager

On June 28, Flora Margheritis was appointed interim manager of Van Nuys Airport (VNY). During her nearly 25-year tenure with Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), her career has included extensive, varied and progressively challenging assignments. 

Margheritis arrived at VNY in 2008 as the Chief of Operations. Since 2010, she has broadened her experience to include tenant and stakeholder relationships, community outreach, and airport business marketing and operations.

Greetings and thank you for the opportunity to introduce myself!

I am excited to serve as interim manager at VNY, our nation’s leading general aviation airport. In the months ahead, I look forward to building even stronger partnerships with all airport stakeholders, ranging from local community members and business leaders to airport users and operators.

It will be my top priority to work with LAWA’s executive team on addressing the airport’s most important operational, community, safety and security issues. These include successful completion of several tenant development projects, and an 18-month air traffic control tower renovation that is currently underway.

I also look forward to future progress on the airport’s perimeter security enhancement program that involves reducing the number of airport access gates, removing visual obstructions on the airfield and installing razor wire on additional portions of the perimeter fence.

I am a firm believer that the best solutions come from working together. Through continued collaboration and open dialogue, together we will continue to accomplish great things at VNY!
