Siza Mzimela Becomes The First Black Woman To Launch An Airline
“Fly Blue Crane has anticipated and is positioned to deliver on what customers want: the enhanced convenience of frequent flights through high on-time performance‚ commitment to consistent service excellence‚ advanced online technologies that will make the booking and travel process fuss-free‚ and of course highly competitive fares‚” said Fly Blue Crane CEO Siza Mzimela.
The COO of Fly Blue Crane‚ Theunis Potgieter‚ said the airline was poised to become an African aviation innovator by responding to market needs and implementing invaluable insights from global travelers who have revealed that customer value is not based on low pricing alone‚ but also in areas such as consistency‚ frequency‚ professionalism and reliability‚ as well as softer touch-points which include complimentary quality meals and the level of attention to detail paid to customers’ special needs when flying.
“Fly Blue Crane’s customers can look forward to such a fresh approach to air travel‚ which blends the best of both worlds without compromising on premium service‚” he said.
“By using what we have learned over the years about international airline best practice‚ we have also created a cost structure which allows us to offer competitive fares without cutting any corners on quality‚ safety and reliability‚” explained GM Commercial‚ Jerome Simelane.
During its launch phase‚ Fly Blue Crane will operate modern and fuel-efficient 50-seater Embraer Regional Jet 145 (ERJ) aircraft in a single class configuration. The use of a single aircraft type will allow for quick aircraft turnaround times and maximum crew synergies
Congrats on this momentous achievement!
