Calgary commissary gets new home.

Calgary's new $1.3 million commissary building is more than three times the size of the former facility. It occupies 15,000 square feet compared to 4,600 square feet at the original premises.
According to Paul Ricciardi, Commissary Services Manager, an annual budget in excess of $7.5 million is required to look after the preparation and boarding of meals and cabin supplies.

"It would be easy to look upon airline commissary services as a 'backroom operation', but without them there would be a lot of hungry and thirsty passengers at 31,000 feet," says Paul.
Highlighting the building's recent official opening was a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by Calgary Mayor Ralph Klein; Bill Rowe, Vice President Western Region and Jack Maloney, General Manager Southern Alberta, followed by an 'open house'' for employees and their families.

First, Mother Nature wreaked havoc on the operation when a snowstorm blanketed London Heathrow Airport (LHR) in mid–December. Then, a British Airport Authority water main broke at LHR on December 22, resulting in extensive water damage to our cargo terminal. Consequently, our Cargo colleagues at LHR were without electricity for a period of two weeks. Kudos to the LHR Cargo team for embracing all of our corporate values.
