What does winning a WestJet Group Award mean to you?
To be honest, when I was initially presented the award, I was a bit shocked and even had to think for a second “Is there another Brian on our Team?” I feel like this award should go to our whole team. Everything I’ve achieved is a group effort and everyone works hard to deliver the best to our Pilots. I appreciate the recognition and look forward to continuing to work hard to ensure WestJet Encore is the best regional airline in Canada.
What has the last year been like for you?
Our industry was hit hard and as we stood our operations down that meant seeing many colleagues placed on furlough, which was difficult. Thankfully, travel is ramping up and as we bring back our colleagues who have been laid off, it has been very busy being involved with all the re-training and re-qualifications, but this is a great reason to be busy.
