It is very special and rewarding for our staff members to receive this reward, helping make them feel valued within this competitive industry. The amount of hard work and determination we all put in to make our customer's entry and exit to the airport as smooth as possible is countless, however good team work and important relations are key! We anticipate more happy customers, and more awards ahead!

Funny parking story: I have a dry/wicked sense of humour and it seems to break the ice with most of the customers we have here.

I once had a group of ladies who came into the car park and one of them was scared to death of flying so of course the other ladies were ribbing her about it.

So I said to her, "If you're that scared of flying, sit at the back of the plane."

She said "Why, is it because it's not as scary at the back?"

I said "Not at all, but you don't hear of many planes backing into mountains do you."

This had them in stitches and seemed to take her mind off the flying for a little while."

Funny parking story: There was this one time where I went to move the customers car, opened it up fine with the button and jumped in. I put the keys in the ignition and the seat and steering wheel began to move and before I knew it I was crushed up inside the car! Turns out the customer had left me with his wife's keys and it had automatic settings for the positions based on the key!
