Airline Economics 40 under 40 2019 – nominations now open

Airline Economics is calling for nominations for the most outstanding individuals in the commercial aviation industry. For the fourth year, we are compiling a list of the top 40 executives under 40 years of age in our industry that are deserving of recognition. This industry is made up of some of the most talented people in the world but it traditionally leans towards the older demographic. This survey seeks to recognise and highlight those younger people in the aviation industry doing great things.

Please send your nominations to via email. Please send the name of the nominee, job title, a short biography, a high resolution photo, and your reasons why they should be considered for the Airline Economics 40 under 40 2019.

Please include details in the person’s achievements that make them worthy of being on the list, and any specific deals the nominee has worked on or career achievements that make them worthy of inclusion.

Any information provided should be suitable for publication unless specifically and clearly indicated.

Firm and PRs are welcome to submit nominations.

All nominees must be under 40 years of age on 5 July 2019.

The closing date for this is 17th June 2019. The Airline Economics editorial team will decide on the final listing ahead of its publication in Issue 50 of Airline Economics, which will be published on or close to 5 July 2019.

We encourage multiple nominations as it helps create a rounded picture of the nominee – for the past two years we have given an award to the person with the most nominees from clients since it shows how well they are doing their job.

NEW FOR 2019 – Aviation Industry Mentors
This year, we are also compiling a mentors list as well, which celebrates those more experienced individuals in the industry that have made an impact on a younger person’s career and success, so please ensure that all nominees provide a vote for their own mentor and the reasons why.

Airbus delivers first A330neo to Delta Air Lines
Delta Air Lines took delivery of its first A330-900, one of 35 A330neos the Atlanta, Georgia-based airline has on order.

Delta was the launch customer for the A330-900, ordering 25 in November 2014 and an additional 10 last year. With the addition of the A330-900, Delta is now operating both of Airbus’ newest widebody models. It has 13 A350-900s in its fleet with another 12 on order. Delta operates more than 265 Airbus aircraft including A321s and A220s, and the airline’s order backlog with Airbus exceeds 270 including 100 A321neos.

An environmental milestone was set as a Delta crew ferried the new A330-900 back to the company’s Atlanta base using a jet fuel blended from conventional sources and non-petroleum synthetic fuel.

Delta will initially base its A330-900s at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, where it will operate the aircraft on flights to Shanghai, Seoul and Tokyo Narita. Delta will configure its A330-900s for 281 passengers, including 29 in business-class suites, 28 in premium economy, 56 in extra-legroom economy seats, and 168 in standard economy. The aircraft will feature Delta’s new internally developed in-flight entertainment system.

Once we have addressed the information requests from the FAA, we will be ready to schedule a certification test flight and submit final certification documentation.”
