We are proud that so many more women are making their mark in the aviation and travel services industry in a myriad of roles – whether as pilots, cabin crew, engineers, on the ramp, at the airport or in our offices. They bring unique perspectives, and add resilience to our business. I’d like to wish all our female staff a happy International Women’s Day, and thank them for their continued commitment.”
