Smith said: “Covid-19 is changing the way we live, work, and travel. As we approach the close of 2020, many organisations in the aviation sector are re-examining their business models in ways that were perhaps unthinkable at the start of the year.
“Tony’s experience and leadership will be invaluable to our clients and colleagues as the sector responds to the pandemic.”
