Come and join us and 8 other Virtual Organisations and Virtual Airlines in celebrating the commitment and hard work of our soon to be former Deputy President, Adam Williams.

Adam Williams. Where to begin? Hmmm. Well, from just over a year and a half in both the middle and senior leadership team, your fresh ideas and new way of thinking transformed the way we operated as a VA. I think it’s fair to say that those changes were very successful, because here we are in December of 2019 and BAVA is a powerhouse on the Infinite Flight community. And a VA looked up to and respected by countless others. We had our moments, quite a few of them looking back. But at the end of the day, we both wanted what was best for the VA. We worked well together and got stuff done! From the way you revolutionised the way we advertised and exposed our VA on social media platforms, to your clever creativeness in making high quality graphics and designs for new badges and our stunning IFC thread. We also saw the launch of our current Crew Centre on VA base which is doing really really well at the moment. I know that absolutely no one in this VA can say, that you weren’t instrumental in making BAVA the success it is today. Any question that anyone had, it’d immediately be followed by someone else saying “ask Adam” or “speak to Adam.” Adam was the guy that could fix or answer anything. Now unfortunately for the VA, and the rest of the staff team that makes this place tick, we have to deal with the fact it’s time for you to move on. And as hard as it will be to even begin to try to carry on the legacy you’ll be leaving, we shall do our very best. So all that’s left for me to say is: On behalf of myself, the rest of team, the pilots of BAVA and indeed the one world virtual alliance, it has been our pleasure serving under your leadership. And we wish you a very pleasant and lengthy onward journey to bigger and better things! Best of luck Adam!

-@Darragh_ODonoghue , Deputy President, British Airways Virtual.


We would like to thank our partner Virtual Airlines and Organisations for taking part in this event alongside us, coming together as one to commemorate the service and altogether thank Adam for his extreme dedication and passion he has given British Airways Virtual.
