The judging panel highlighted FAI‘s prompt and timely roll out of its Covid-19 aeromedical transport capability as well as its ability to increase capacity across its fleet as it rapidly responded to the pandemic.

Accepting the 2021 award, Barbara Baumgartner, managing director, FAI rent-a-jet, said:“On behalf of FAI, I am incredibly proud to have won this prestigious award particularly given the immensely challenging year we have had to meet demand and manage restrictions during the pandemic. I would like to thank our entire team who are driven by passion, dedication and determination to overcome challenges and who have learnt never to take anything for granted. Without them, our work and this achievement would not be possible.”

 

“Congratulations to the team at FAI for a well-deserved win in this special category,” said, Kenneth Mitchen, executive director, MEA Business. “Our judging panel commented that FAI demonstrated creditable foresight and dedication, allowing it to maintain vital services throughout the most difficult and unpredictable year in recent history.”
