From Opportunity to Reality: Larry Coyne – CEO and Founder of Coyne Airways

This episode we are joined by Larry Coyne – CEO and Founder of Coyne Airways. A carrier without its own aircraft. So many firsts for Larry and his team. A man who recognises an opportunity when he sees one and is prepared to follow his instincts. A change in career circumstance, a chance meeting, being offered the use of 100’s of aircraft, all collective ingredients in what was to become Coyne Airways. A supporter of enablers and not blockers as was referenced to Liege Airport and Steven Verhasselt. A man who speaks his mind and knows what is necessary to make things happen. Adapting and learning and now transforming as a result of the pandemic crisis, Larry enjoys what he does and what he has done — quite rightly so!
