The Baltic Air Charter Association have introduced a new award category for young people at their annual award luncheon this October. The purpose of the Young Person of the Year Award is to provide recognition for young people who have made an outstanding start to their career in aviation. The nomination criteria specified that nominees should have made a significant impact with their work but are still 25 years of age or younger. Key factors in selecting a short list were enthusiasm, positive attitude, initiative and a passion for aviation. The new Young Person of the Year Award reflects how brokers are accepting and embracing new entrants to the industry.
Max Randall, Head of Ground Operations and Charter Manager at SaxonAir was shortlisted as one of the final three nominated contenders – In the relatively short time that Max has been with SaxonAir he has become a very well-known and respected industry character and an excellent ambassador for his company. SaxonAir knows that if Max is looking after a flight, it will go well and excellent customer service is guaranteed!
SaxonAir are very proud to have been a part of the final nominations with Max and reward him on his continuous development and commitment in his role in the company.
BACA Chairman Richard Mumford comments “I believe this Award is a great step forward in encouraging and rewarding young people in the air charter industry. We have received some incredible nominations for the Young Person of the Year Award and the Council certainly had its work cut out in selecting a winner. I look forward to presenting the Award at the BACA Autumn lunch and congratulate all those who have participated for such a high standard of entries.”
