Conrad Clifford, the former chief executive of Virgin Nigeria, is to be the new Vice President of Emirates Airline for the UK and Ireland.

He will be replacing Vic Sheppard, who is retiring this year after 13 years with Emirates during which time the airline’s operations in the UK have grown from four services a day from three airports to today’s 14 flights a day from six gateways.

Clifford, 51, will join the airline in September after a four year spell with Virgin Nigeria during which he has overseen its establishment.
