The managing director of Edinburgh Airport has resigned after a year in post.

Kevin Brown is starting a new job next month as chief executive officer at North Queensland Airport Group, which is based in Cairns, Australia.

BAA said Jim O'Sullivan, who currently works at Heathrow, has been appointed to take over at the helm of Edinburgh Airport on 1 September.

BAA said Mr Brown was leaving a "healthy airport".

Mr Brown, who is moving with his wife and six-year-old twins, will be responsible for two airports, Cairns and Mackay.

Colin Matthews, chief executive of BAA, said: "Kevin Brown leaves a healthy airport that is performing well in difficult circumstances.

"We wish him well in his exciting new role and thank him for the substantial contribution he has made to BAA at Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Southampton and Heathrow Airports."

'Difficult circumstances'

Edinburgh Airport is currently the fifth largest airport in the UK by passenger numbers.
