For the IAB Crew

In this topsy-turvy world one thing which shines through
is the incredible Air Crew International Air Bahama Website
which continues to bring together those who worked for and,
by descending family, are connected to IAB and its
outstanding success.

I shall never forget the day I addressed 28 smart young
ladies who were training in Dublin courtesy of Aer Lingus
and when they arrived in Luxembourg on a very hot summer's
day prior to departure on that first flight to the Bahamas.
Their enthusiasm for the project was the omen of great
success which heralded the launch of the first scheduled
low-cost all-jet trans-Atlantic airline equipped with brand
new aircraft just rolled out from Boeing,
and flown by IAB's
million-mile pilots.

My wife Joyce together with our son and daughter-in-law,
Maurice and Caroline, and our granddaughter Annabel, join
with me in sending best wishes and good fortune to you all
in 2014.

Norman Ricketts
Founder - International Air Bahama
