December 12, 2020: Larry Coyne, CEO of Coyne Airways and Coyne Aviation, has been selected by TIACA’s chairman’s council as the association’s 2020 Hall of Fame recipient.

The annual TIACA Hall of Fame Award honors professionals with outstanding achievements in the development of the air cargo industry, exquisite leadership record and an innovative spirit.

Larry Coyne established Coyne Aviation in 1994, providing cargo charter flights to the fast-developing CIS countries, in particular to Transcaucasia and Central Asia. Coyne Aviation quickly became the number one cargo carrier to the whole of the CIS from Europe with a strong reputation for providing reliable and secure scheduled cargo services to some of the world’s hardest to reach destinations.

Not one to sit on the sidelines, throughout his career Larry Coyne was a passionate advocate of security, liberalization of cargo traffic rights and the removal of obstacles to the growth of the industry. Larry Coyne saw that TIACA could be useful in pushing this call for reform and joined TIACA’s Industry Affairs Committee in 1998. After serving on TIACA’s Industry Affairs Committee, Larry was then elected to serve as Vice Chairman and eventually Chairman of the association where he championed security, liberalization and the growth of air cargo industry.

Sebastiaan Scholte, chair of TIACA’s chairman’s council, said, “Larry always has been passionate about our industry and a true believer in the value of TIACA. He has contributed a lot to our organization and to our industry. I am thankful for the advice he has given me during my time as Chairman. It is an honor to see that Larry will now be part of the famous Hall of Fame.”

Coyne joins a star-studded group of 54 air cargo leaders who have received the prestigious Hall of Fame Award since its launch in 1997.

Larry Coyne was announced as the 2020 Hall of Fame ecipient at the closing session of TIACA’s Digital Air Cargo Forum (ACF) and will be formally inducted into the Hall of Fame at the next physical TIACA event to be determined in 2021.
