Area airports chief to retire
James Bennett, president and chief executive of the region's airports authority, announced Wednesday that he will retire in May.
Bennett, 55, was only the second chief executive in the 24-year history of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which operates Reagan National and Dulles International airports.
He presided over a period of huge expansion to accommodate increasing passenger volume at both, with new terminals and runways and construction of a Metrorail extension to Dulles.
The airports authority board has not named an interim replacement.
