Changes to Flybe's flight operations team
Flybe has completed a review of the production side of its flight operations department, that has resulted in John Palmer (left) being appointed to the new position of director of aircraft operations with Marshall Barrand (right) assuming Palmer's former role as director of aviation services. Both positions report to chief operating officer, Andrew Strong.
Palmer is responsible for all the airline’s flight operations and engineering functions. He joined Flybe in 2006 as director of aviation services to oversee the development of the airline's maintenance facility.
In his new role as director of aviation services, Barrand is responsible for Flybe’s highly successful group engineering division headquartered at its state-of-the-art maintenance hangar in Exeter. Formerly Flybe’s sales director, he has extensive experience across all aspects of the airline from revenue management and marketing to commercial sales and alliances.
Flybe Aviation Services, based at the new Walker Hangar at Exeter International Airport, has the status of Embraer Service Centre for Europe and was the first company in the world to be awarded the Bombardier Recognised Service Facility for the Dash 8 family.
