Ferrovial Airports has appointed Caryn Moore Lund as vice president of Public Policy, Regulatory and Government Affairs at its Vertiports business. In this role, to be based in Washington, D.C., Lund will have oversight of U.S./Global public policy and government relations strategies at the federal, state, and local levels.
In support of its mission to transform the future of urban mobility, Ferrovial Vertiports strengthens its leadership team to tackle future challenges within the advanced air mobility (AAM) sector. Lund previously served as the ‘Head of Public Affairs – Americas’ for Lilium Aviation, a leading manufacturer of electric takeoff and landing aircraft (eVTOLs). Before joining Lilium in September 2020, Lund served in leadership roles with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and on the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure.
“Ferrovial Vertiports is fortunate to add someone as experienced, capable, and knowledgeable as Caryn to our team. Her breadth and depth of experience will serve us well, as we continue to work with federal regulatory agencies, state officials, and local leaders and communities across the U.S. and Europe,” said Kevin Cox, CEO of Ferrovial Vertiports. “As the nascent advanced air mobility sector takes flight, Ferrovial will strive to ensure the industry’s success by working with all stakeholders who will benefit from this safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly form of air transportation.”
Working with leading manufacturers and air service operators, Ferrovial Vertiports, backed by Ferrovial’s 70 years of transportation infrastructure experience, is developing a series of agnostic vertiports networks in Europe and the United States. The siting, developing, and operating of these networks will be to support all-electric, zero-carbon eVTOL air transport services.
“It is truly an exciting opportunity to join a leading infrastructure company such as Ferrovial, with decades of experience in not only developing, but also operating major transportation infrastructure across the globe,” Lund said. “I deeply believe in the mission and the potential benefits that this new, sustainable form of air mobility can provide to states, cities, and communities worldwide.”
Ferrovial’s Vertiports will be intermodal centers integrated into the urban landscape that are adapted to the environment, reduce the acoustic impact, produce no emissions, and meet the highest energy efficiency standards through innovative design. In addition, they will be agnostic and adaptable to serve multiple eVTOL aircraft types and business models.
Ferrovial has 25 years of experience in the investment, development, construction, and operation of 36 airports worldwide, including the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, and Chile. It currently has four airports in the United Kingdom. With a 25% stake in Heathrow Airport, it is its main shareholder and industrial partner and owns 50% of Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Southampton airports.

Ferrovial Airports has also acquired 60% of Dalaman International Airport in Turkey from the YDA Group.
