Airline Ground Services Digital Summit Podcast (03 of 04)

Fabio Gamba- Director General – ACA (Airline Catering Association) & ASA (Airport Services Association)

Hear how the COVID-19 crisis materialised for the associations, who’s main aim is to represent the interests of their members.

Gain an insight into the ground handlers who have continued to work hard throughout the pandemic, despite the lack of support from the governments and the difficulties ground handling individuals face trying to social distance, as directed by the governments, whilst carrying out their duties.

The primary target for all associations has been to explain to people that flying – Is Safe. With the concerns about flying, catering, touch points, hygiene etc we need to restore the confidence that has been lost in respect to air travel.

Listen to Fabio’s views on the quarantine measures and the association solutions that need to be implemented worldwide for them to be effective and bring back passenger confidence.
