Our em­ploy­ees are the brains be­hind our whole op­er­a­tion and a huge driver of our suc­cess as an air­line, which is why we want to re­ward them with some well-de­served recog­ni­tion. Here are three staff mem­bers who have warmed our hearts this month.

In Flight Magazine - - CEO LETTER -

Shaaista joined the FlySafair team in Oc­to­ber 2017 as the Dur­ban Base Man­ager. She has a vast amount of ex­pe­ri­ence in avi­a­tion spe­cial­is­ing in ground han­dling ser­vices that in­clude pas­sen­ger and ramp ser­vices. Shaaista has im­proved ev­ery as­pect and ev­ery depart­ment at Dur­ban Air­port through her ex­cel­lent work ethic. She is a true leader and her pro­fes­sion­al­ism is some­thing that we can all adopt. A true Sa­far­ian with pas­sion and ded­i­ca­tion!

Karen is a per­fect ex­am­ple of Safair’s Gla­di­a­tor spirit. Since she joined the Safair fam­ily she’s contributed in var­i­ous ways across the busi­ness, and not only the IT In­no­va­tion team.You won’t often hear the words “no” or “we can’t” but in­stead you’ll hear words like “yes, of course” or “we’ll make a plan” from Karen. We love the en­ergy she brings to the team and her will­ing­ness to al­ways go be­yond her nor­mal du­ties makes Karen a valu­able as­set to Safair and ul­ti­mately our in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal cus­tomers.

Lindie is our Air­craft Move­ment Man­ager, which means she is re­spon­si­ble for en­sur­ing that our air­craft are al­ways in the air when they need to be or that our air­craft are al­ways avail­able and ready for take­off.This means she is very much re­spon­si­ble for the ex­cel­lent on-time per­for­mance we have achieved. Her po­si­tion scope is some­thing that re­quires a lot of ded­i­ca­tion and fo­cus, as she needs to be ready at any given time to find a so­lu­tion to any ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties that may oc­cur. We couldn’t think of any­one bet­ter-suited for this job, as she leads her team by ex­am­ple and per­forms very well un­der pres­sure.

Basie is a re­tiree that we con­tract back to sup­ple­ment the per­ma­nent com­ple­ment of Avionic Tech­ni­cians in the hanger and the Flight Line. Basie is a ded­i­cated ex­pe­ri­enced tech­ni­cian that is al­ways will­ing to help Safair when there is a prob­lem. He has been part of the Safair tech­ni­cal fam­ily for years. When one of our con­tract op­er­a­tions in Harare, Zim­babwe, had a tech­ni­cal is­sue, he was able to travel at an hour’s no­tice to help re­pair the air­craft. We see this as ex­cep­tional ded­i­ca­tion to the com­pany and we’re proud to have him as a part of our Safair fam­ily.
