“It is a privilege to have Sergi on board with us,” said Peter Hames, Managing Director of L2b Aviation. “We are delighted to have his guidance and look forward to working with him to continue L2b’s success. Next year we celebrate our 20th anniversary, which is a fantastic achievement for a network which just keeps going from strength to strength and this will only continue with Sergi joining the team.”
