Pablo Lázaro Melgar, The Director Of Almería Airport, Dies Aged 53

Pablo Lázaro Melgar, died this morning, Saturday 17, aged 53, after fighting a long illness, having been the director of Almería airport since April 1, 2013.

Having previously been the chief of staff in Alicante airport, and the director of the airport in Gran Canaria and Murcia-San Javiere, he took over the running of the El Alquián aerodrome from Santiago Yus Sáenz, eight years ago, after Sáenz was assigned to Tenerife South airport in the Canary Islands.


Born in Aguilafuente, Segovia in 1967, Pablo qualified as an Industrial Engineer from the Polytechnic University of Madrid, specialising in electricity, and he had worked intensively since 2013 in the consolidation and promotion of the connectivity of Almería airport.

His unexpected passing leaves a huge void for the professionals of the Almería airport, of whom he had earned the admiration and respect, while promoting Almería as a travel destination to institutions throughout Europe.

Pablo’s professional career at Aena began in Air Navigation in 1996 as Head of Projects and Systems Management, and then between 2003 and 2005, he became part of the Engineering and Works department, and was later appointed head of the Energy and Works division until 2006, all of them attached to the Engineering and Operations department.

After studying for the Master in Infrastructure Management and Public Services from CEDEX, he completed the IESE Executive Development program in 2012, enabling him to move into the career he had shown such promise in, as reported by
