In an encore episode, Steve D'Agostino interviews Andrew Davis, manager of Worcester Regional Airport, which is owned an operated by Massport.

In 2009, following a 26-year career with American Airlines, Andy Davis joined Massport as the director of Worcester's airport. In fact, it was through his long-standing commitment to the airline industry that Davis developed the kind of management experience so applicable to airport work today. At hubs large and small, from Eagle/Vail in Colorado to Chicago O’Hare, Davis held both operations and staff level positions, where his resume today includes positions held at 10 airports, to include Boston, Providence, Hartford/Springfield and Steward/Newburgh. He's assisted American with start-up operations in 12 other cities as well.

While he's gained substantial "OJT" from his work around the country, Davis began his professional foray into aviation as a local guy. Here, he was active early on as a member of the Rhode Island wing of Civil Air Patrol. In college, he attended New Hampshire's Hawthorne College, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree, double majoring in business administration and aviation management. As president of Hawthorne's student government, Davis, in his senior year, received the institution’s Damaree Award for his noteworthy accomplishments, and was thus inducted into the Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities.

Today, while handling day-to-day operations, Davis has cast a serious eye forward, as he looks to match the airport's great promise with worthy development projects. And for Worcester, he believes the future is especially bright. Of special note, he says, is "a modern passenger terminal, suitable for both narrow body and regional jet aircraft, and several hundred acres of developable land, which have the airport well positioned to support aviation growth in the region." A vocal supporter of both commercial and general aviation interests at Worcester, Davis stays particularly busy these days promoting the use of Worcester through his participation in the region's chambers of commerce, the Central Massachusetts Convention and Visitors Bureau, and area business associations.
