Gates Aviation Consulting has bolstered its emergency planning and crisis management team with the appointment of new partner Victoria White.
Ms White joins Gates from British Airways where she was manager of operational contingencies responsible for emergency planning and crisis management.
Ms White brings with her 12 years of specialist aviation experience.
She played a key role as part of the BA crisis management team during the events of 9/11 and the Air France Concorde crash.
In 1999 Ms White planned relief flights for refugees in Kosovo, successfully coordinating agencies such as UNICEF, the press, the military and airport authorities.
Following terrorist atrocities in Luxor, Ms White also organised flights to evacuate UK citizens.
