What makes Airswift different?

The biggest difference is our truly global reach and international footprint. We operate in every major market, which in turn gives our customers and consultants the comfort and security that they are dealing with Airswift people directly, wherever that may be in world. Our business has and always will be about strong working relationships and trusted partnerships. Being able to forge these across the world in every language and in every time zone makes us different.

Why are you passionate about what you do?

Belief! Belief in what can be achieved when the right people come together with a common purpose, vision and ambition. Being with the company for as long as I have has allowed me to experience first-hand how a collective belief in what you are going to do combined with a clear understanding of how it makes a difference can transform and grow a business. Seeing new generations of Airswift employees align with these beliefs keeps me passionate and proud of our business.

Which Airswift value(s) do you think are particularly important and why?

Integrity. Success in our market is built upon long standing relationships that have been developed over many years. The cornerstone to all these successful partnerships has been built on our adoption of working and acting with integrity at every level. Our customers and consultants trust us and know we will always deliver for them without compromise and with the utmost integrity.
