On Approach is a regular Air Mail feature where we interview people who make a difference every day at YVR. We asked Craig five travel- and airport-related questions so that the community can get to know him before he officially arrives as President & CEO on July 2.
What was your first airplane experience?
At age 13, I was in the back seat on my Dad's third flying lesson - magic. And look where it led.
What’s your favourite vacation memory?
The Maldives with my wife, Wendy. Beautiful ocean, millions of fish to watch and truly sublime food.
What’s something unexpected in your carry-on?
I have an app on my iPhone called WhiteNoise. When I have my Bose headphones on, I plug into that and dial up thunderstorms. It really works to cut cabin noise and allow a deep sleep.
You walk into YVR. What do you notice first?
Right side of my brain: the light and colours. Left side: how busy are we, any queues, is the floor clean?
What did you want to be when you grew up?
