Logan Airport “Stars” Award Honors Employees Who Rise Above
The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) today announced the most recent winners of its “Logan Stars” award program. The awards honor non-Massport employees and aviation business partners who go beyond the call of duty to serve the airport community and its customers.

“The Logan Stars award acknowledges employees who contribute to the greater good of the traveling public by going above and beyond their normal work duties,” said Massport’s Director of Aviation Edward C. Freni. “We are proud to work alongside these individuals whose cooperative efforts with Massport make Boston Logan a safer, more secure and customer-focused airport.”
The award is designed to recognize the contributions of Logan employees in five separate categories:
Receiving the “Logan Stars” award for exceptional customer service were, Cpl. Richard Brown, United States Army; Hocine Chibani, United Airlines; Anthony Ferrera, JetBlue; Yvonne Fucci, United Airlines; Christopher LoConte, United Airlines; Otto Goletz, JetBlue; Robert Norris, United Airlines; Capt. Nicholas Petren, United States Air Force; AnnMarie Williams-Reid, American Airlines; and Jeffery Wootan, United Airlines.
In recognition of individual Massport employees who have made a major work accomplishment to the Authority as a whole, Massport sponsors an “Outstanding Achievement Award” for superior contributions made by Authority employees.
