CELEBRATING AVIATION EXCELLENCE AROUND THE WORLD
This year at the 24th Annual GHI Conference we celebrated the Pride of Ground Handling Awards ceremony live in the Conference Room. A huge congratulations to the award winners of this year!
Launched in 2018 – the Pride of Ground Handling Awards showcase aviation teams that go the extra mile to deliver added value services to passengers and exemplify a commitment to quality, safety, teamwork and innovation.
If you are proud to work in aviation and want to help GHI hit back against the myth that ground handling is locked in a race to the bottom on price then watch the special ceremony.

“Winning the Pride of Ground Handling Sustainability Award was a real boost to our hard-working team, who have been devising and implementing many highly-effective environmental measures over recent years. Hactl cares deeply about the environment, and all our policies and actions are now shaped by careful consideration of their environmental impact. This focus would not be possible without the constant efforts of our sustainability team, who rarely receive external recognition. This award is a welcome endorsement of all the hard work we are doing at Hactl to protect the environment, and we are grateful that Ground Handling International has included this important aspect of handling in its awards scheme.”
“Winning the Pride of Ground Handling Award is a life achievement, as it has given me courage and motivation to continue working. I have earned a lot of respect from colleagues that some people now call me ‘International Man’ and my family we are proud to be recognised internationally.”
“From my point of view, the Pride of Ground Handling Awards has granted the chance to broadcast Aviapartner GRO as an point of attention to airlines and overall handlers and it has been an endorsement to individuals to be brave and believe that everything is achievable. As a result, they become prouder and improve self-esteem on how they conduct their job duties. I consider these awards an unique opportunity to self-motivate and spur best performance for companies through their employees.”
“Winning the Pride of Ground Handling Award has been a remarkable addition to Gerry’s dnata’s accolades. It has supported the propagation of our message to the world that success and recognition through persistence, resilience and hard work sees no boundaries. It is an honour for my team as well as for me to be able to garner such a position on an international platform that impeccably represents the global aviation industry.”
“A good beginning makes a good ending so it is important to recognise the ground handling excellence and support that cushions the travel journey. Those unsung heroes behind every good passenger experience.
We were overwhelmed by the grace and persistence of our team, subject matter experts from different employment grades who have gone through so much tests and trials achieving this success today. Winning the GHI award has certainly given a word-class recognition to our good work; growing confidence with our stakeholders.”
