The team which has just taken over UK regional airline Gill Air (Flight International, 1-7 February, P16) have a wealth of experience in the UK air-transport business. Managing director Trefor Jones (left), like finance director Mike Robinson (right), came from Jersey European Airways. Before that, however, Jones had been director general of the European Regional Airlines Association and a director of Birmingham European Airways (BEA) - now taken over by Maersk Air - and of Alidair. Robinson had been a consultant at finance company 3i when it was backing British Caledonian (now British Airways), and also at BEA. Gill's new general manager Malcolm Hart (centre) was managing director there for five years before Jones joined the team. He was formerly with aircraft leasing and maintenance company Fairflight at Biggin Hill Airport, Kent.
