With the festive season upon us, I wanted to wish all of the New Zealand Air Line Pilots’ Association members and staff a safe and special time with family and friends.

I know this time of the year, and throughout the summer, can be the busiest and many will be working through the period.

Over the last few years we’ve seen a record number of people travelling by air, into and within New Zealand, as well as those of you continuing to serve in your essential transport aviation, safety and rescue roles.

The high level of skill and dedication of New Zealand’s pilots, air traffic controllers and those who maintain and support this work throughout industry allows those of us who can take a break over this period to connect safely with loved ones, reflect and celebrate. 2020 will be a significant year for the sector, including the passing of an improved Civil Aviation Bill, and I thank everyone who has provided invaluable feedback. I wish you all the best of the season and a safe and happy New Year.
