Right on the heels of the Grammys, Emmys and Oscars, it’s award season at Ground Support Worldwide.

Stay tuned for the upcoming announcement of the 2024 Leaders of the Year. The April issue will feature this year’s Product Leader, Service Leader, Team Leader and Lifetime Achievement honorees.

It’s one of the features we look forward to most, shining a well-deserved light on the talented people making a difference in our industry.

In addition to making the Leaders of the Year announcement, submissions for the second annual Ground Support Team of the Year Award are now open.

Ground Support Worldwide launched the Ground Support Team of the Year Award in 2023 to spotlight deserving ground crews and acknowledge their indispensable contributions to the overall aviation ecosystem.

“Our team is going to love putting this up in the break room and showing it off to the folks at Tampa Airport,” said John Vollbrecht, general manager for Menzies Aviation TPA, whose team was presented the 2023 honor during the International GSE Expo in Las Vegas.

Ground support teams are the unsung heroes behind the scenes, tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of airlines and airports. The unwavering commitment, tireless efforts and profound knowledge possessed by ground support crews contribute significantly to safety, efficiency and the overall passenger experience.

At Ground Support Worldwide, we have the privilege of witnessing the remarkable dedication and expertise displayed by ground support teams around the world. With that in mind, we encourage our readers to consider nominating their own exceptional teams for this prestigious award.

By nominating a worthy ground support team, you not only have the chance to recognize their exceptional work, but also to showcase their accomplishments to a global audience. The award serves as a platform to acknowledge the vital role played by ground support teams in the aviation industry and inspire others to strive for excellence.
