Last week Menzies Aviation took part in the Edinburgh Airport (EDI) Annual Safety Week for the 6th consecutive year, choosing to highlight the issue of the ‘Cost of Accidents’.
As part of the event, the EDI team collaborated with Jet2 for the event, as part of the “One team, One goal” partnership.
The team staged an aircraft turnaround to demonstrate how aircraft damage and personal injury can be caused. Using an aircraft provided by the airline and equipment provided by Menzies Aviation, representatives from both companies led groups on a guided tour of turnaround risk.
Employees throughout the airport community took part, including service providers, airlines and airport authority, and had the opportunity to win holiday tickets donated by the airline if they answered a number of questions correctly – the answers to each were included within the tour commentary ensuring it held their attention for the full duration as well as being informative.
Gordon Whitelaw, Ground Safety Manager for Jet2, said “We would like to congratulate and thank the EDI team for their part in making the event a huge success and in promoting the absolute importance of ground safety as part of the Menzies Aviation brand. Attendees found the guided tours informative and felt they had learned from the experience. The event highlighted the success of the safety plan ‘One Team, one goal’ introduced in June this year and the continual safety improvements in EDI and across the network where we have a partnership.”
