Chris Notter speaks to Trudy Wassel and Jim Szczesniak from Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport

In this episode we are joined by Trudy Wassel and Jim Szczesniak from Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. A great team as will be seen from the podcast session. As Director and Deputy Director of one of the most interesting airports in the world their spirit and recognition of how lucky they are to work in such a location shines through.
Even in such a location this Covid-19 enemy lurks in the shadows as it does almost everywhere in the world.

The airport is however busy with freighter movements supporting the urgently required medical goods, pharmaceuticals and necessities of supply chain transport. A real ‘window opener’ and indication of just how important Cargo is especially in a crisis.
