    Protano joins the Jetglow senior leadership team, headquartered in Guiseley, to “drive the organisations ambitious growth plans”.

    The aviation industry is one of the industries that has been impacted the most by the Covid-19 pandemic. The company says that despite this, there are emerging signs that air travel is returning, with refurbishment one of the first priorities for airlines as they prepare to embark on a revival in 2021.

    With over a decade of experience within the aviation sector, Protano brings a “wealth of knowledge” to the Jetglow team, having worked primarily in the aircraft interiors and leasing community and with international and regional carriers.

    In his role as senior sales vice-president, Protano plans to utilise his knowledge and expertise harnessed over the last decade to expand Jetglow’s international marketplace.

    Protano said: “I am delighted to have been brought on board by Jetglow. I believe we are now seeing some light at the end of the tunnel during what has been an enormously challenging time for the aviation industry. Joining an ambitious and fast-moving business like Jetglow at a time when efficiency and economy are vital in the sector gives me a great opportunity to help the business move forward into 2021 with real optimism.”

    Established in 2008, Jetglow is an EASA 145 & Part 21 Subpart G approved company, which means it is licensed to undertake the complete refurbishment of commercial and general aviation cabin interiors. It’s offering ranges from passenger seat repair to complete refurbishment of cabin interiors and modules/monuments.

    As part of its refurbishment package, the business also offers a design service, including the production of mandatory markings, exterior and interior placards, liveries, and decals.
