The Weekend Show with Chris Notter and Steven Dickson (part 36)

Here we are = last show of the year.

Big thank you to Steven for all his time, input, comment, and humour.

Heathrow wins small battle on third runway.

Pharma.Aero follow up survey shows improved positivity and greater confidence in handling the vaccines.

easyJet opens routes from Scotland

IATA calls for aviation workers to be recognized as essential workers for early vaccination

Well done to Aviation Action and Chris Wild for the ‘Run the Runway’ challenge and support work for those in need. 

EGO Airways of Italy and a lovely passenger – customer focused purpose and statement

Bringing aircraft back to service – rusty pilots and insects blocking sensors!

Cebu Pacific keeping open options for customers to change flights or use a travel fund for 2 years – well done.

New way leadership training and support will be needed in 2021 and beyond

New starters for 2021 – good luck in your new roles – many have been mentioned but a great forward line would be Martin Drew of EY, Sebastiaan Scholte of Kales and Willie Walsh at IATA.. Wishing great success to everyone starting a new position.

Reflection and thoughts go out to all those affected by this terrible pandemic and for all those on the front lines everywhere. Let’s all hope 2021 returns many to work, others to seek new opportunities and again others in a genuine search for useful more common practice. 

To everyone – ‘should you fail, then fail having dared greatly’ – be healthy and be lucky as we move from a year of fear, hopefully to one of good cheer. Have the very best of Xmas festivities and year-end celebrations with loved ones and make 2021 a year when we all dare to CARE.
