The airports of Britain and Ireland thrive on clean toilets, runways clear of snow and ice, prompt delivery of bags, and the absence of queues.

The British-Irish Airports Unsung Hero Awards are for people who take pride in their work, people who care and deliver results, and do it with a smile.

Staff who deliver great results make the difference between a good and bad airport

Even the most relied-upon and caring employees are unlikely to ever receive an OBE or a Queen’s Gallantry Medal. But Unsung Heroes will no longer go unrecognised in these awards which will be presented at the free-to-attend British-Irish Airports EXPO at the London Olympia.
