The people are what make Greater Binghamton Airport special; The flyers, the families hugging their loved ones goodbye, welcoming those they’ve missed, and the airport personnel who assist these travelers every day. Each person is an integral piece of the puzzle that is Greater Binghamton Airport. As an establishment so focused on the community, it only makes sense to acknowledge and spotlight some of those individuals.
The Greater Binghamton Airport is excited to announce that we are starting a new blog series entitled Travelers of Binghamton. The goal for this blog is to highlight stories from those working and moving through the airport, daily quotes, and traveling tips of people from all corners of the earth and our local airport team members.
I’m sure many of you are familiar with Humans of New York, the photoblog that features street portraits and interviews collected in New York City. It was started in November 2010 by photographer Brandon Stanton. The Facebook page has over 15 million followers and counting. Lives have been touched, people helped, and smiles brought to the faces of many all over the world. It has been the inspiration for this new FlyBGM Blog Series. Travelers of Binghamton will obviously be on a much smaller scale, but will still aim to introduce us to those who we may otherwise not have the opportunity to meet, and connect with their stories.
This is an interview that recently appeared on Humans of New York. This kid could bring a smile to anyone’s face!
For our very first post, we introduce you to Debbie Wall.
“When I was young I had the privilege of getting to travel all the time with my parents, and I realized that’s something I love! I always wanted to work for the airlines; my parents worked for the airlines. I’ve always known about the airport my whole life. Through this job, I have made quite a few new friends that are part of my family now, and I feel that this is not just a job, this is my family”
Debbie Wall has worked for the United Airlines HR Department at The Greater Binghamton Airport for 30 years.
