Manchester Airports Group (MAG) property director Gareth Jackson, speaking after air services provider dnata unveiled its new cargo complex at Manchester Airport:

The new facility will further enhance the role we play in ensuring freight is seamlessly transported into and out of the North region markets from all parts of the world. Not only will the centre help the North’s trade credentials, [but it will also] boost employment opportunities for communities in Greater Manchester too. We look forward to working closely with dnata as it continues to grow from Manchester Airport.

International Air Transport Association director general and CEO Alexandre de Juniac, speaking at the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) in January:

Too often governments choose to go their own way rather than adopt established global standards. We cannot afford the delays and complexities that this will bring. We are committed to building a modular travel pass whose functions will work cost-effectively with other solutions. And we need governments to be committed to accepting the global standards that will make this possible.
