BBC Airport: Featured Staff Still Around? 2.0

Sat Aug 30, 2014 1:09 am

We need an updated thread on the one from 2008. Title says it all: Are any of the staff from BBC Airport still working at or around heathrow? If not, where?
I made a point in 2011 to go around and find everyone I could who was on the show. I found: Maria from Cyprus still working the ticket office, Stuart from animal control still in the animal reception center and Kelvin from Canadian Airlines now working for Air Canada.

John Cull retired. He has his own YouTube channel (including a video explaining his retirement) and films his travel experiences.

Jeremy Spake seems to do broadcasting & writing now.

Can't help that Kelvin was the inspiration for Moses from Come Fly With me:

I've heard Siobhan from EI is now apparently LHR Airport Manager for SAS and that the young VS crew member moved to BA a while ago.

Anita Newport is still there in the VIP suite, I wonder if Maira at CY will be relocated to STN? They seem to be the only two long serving main characters still there along with (Stuart?) from the animal reception centre.
