A group of 11 other staff members who had completed more than 20 years of service working with the government or other bodies operating at the airport such as the Meteorological Services or Cable and Wireless Ltd were also invited to the event to receive a small token of appreciation.
The long service award ceremony was held on Friday July 15th at the Carambole Restaurant, Roche Caiman from 5pm.
The ceremony was graced by the presence of the Foreign Affairs and Transport Minister Joel Morgan as well as the chairman of the board of SCAA Captain David Savy. Mr. Morgan and the SCAA chief executive Mr. Gilbert Faure who addressed the awardees.
