Willie Walsh humbled by CAPA Legend Award presentation

Willie Walsh’s focused and strategic management style has served him well at the helm of Aer Lingus, British Airways and IAG, of which he was the lead architect. In both 2015 and 2016, IAG achieved a return on invested capital above its estimated cost of capital, giving it the rare distinction among European legacy airline groups of creating economic value for investors.

Last night the Irishman was recognised for his efforts and presented with the CAPA Legend Award at a gala dinner at the CAPA-ACTE Global Summit in London. The  occasional award is given to individuals who have stood out as making a substantial long term difference to the industry in which they work.

The Blue Swan Daily grabbed Willie after the presentation for a few words…
