Alana Burns has been in the aviation industry for almost 20 years. Coming from a private banking background, Alana joined Atlas Helicopters in 2003 in Operations, to help improve Customer Service levels and increase the high-net-worth client base. In 2007, she became General Manager for Atlas Helicopters and helped drive the company forward to become one of the leading charter companies in the UK. In 2019 Alana took on the role of Safety Manager and in 2020 was promoted to Operations Director. With the helicopter charter industry being relatively small within the UK, Alana is a firm believer in collaboration with other helicopter charter companies, working towards improving not only service levels but also safety.
When not working, Alana enjoys travelling, especially with her two boys, paddle boarding and walking with her dog.
