AIRNORTH AWARDED CHIEF MINISTER’S RESOURCE SUPPLY AND SERVICE AWARD
Airnorth is honoured to have been awarded the coveted Resource Supply and Service Award this at the 2020 Chief Minister’s Export and Industry Awards – Resilient Territory held in Darwin. This year the prestigious awards gave special recognition to Northern Territory businesses who have shown resilience through the COVID-19 pandemic.
Airnorth’s winning submission focused on the company’s ability to quickly adapt to the challenges of operating in a COVID-19 world and deliver on its promise to provide safe reliable services. Within a fortnight of Australia’s international and domestic borders closing, Airnorth went from an airline operating 220 scheduled departures a week to having their wings clipped. Airnorth proved adaptable by quickly developing a COVID Management Plan based on the World Health Organisation and Australian Government guidelines to allow continued operations.
“Airnorth has proven resilient in our determination to keep flying despite the impacts on travel from recent bushfires, a slowing economy and COVID- 19. Our ability to swiftly develop a COVID Management Plan gave us a first mover advantage to meet the growing demands from high profile resource companies with closed charter operations that ensured COVID-safe transport for our customers employees and contractors, thus continuing to reaffirm our position as a formidable airline within the industry” said Airnorth CEO Daniel Bowden.
Airnorth, the Northern Territory’s home-grown airline, has been mastering the northern skies for over 40 years and remains committed to the communities and regional hubs that it operates to and from.
