Subscribers of Airline Economics and readers of Aviation News Online were asked to nominate colleagues and peers aged below forty years who they believed were deserving of recognition for their contribution to the aviation industry. An overwhelming response demonstrated to the publishers that the talent and skills of these young, dynamic people needed to be acknowledged.
