As a Boss lady, What do you do when owning a plane is not enough? You own an airline…lol.
This is the case of South African businesswoman Siza Mzimela. She has become the first African woman to own an airline after spearheading the creation of Fly Blue Crane.
Size Mzimela said about her 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.”
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
She is also the founder and Executive Chairperson of Blue Crane Aviation, an aviation services company with “specific focus on African airlines,” which provides airlines and aviation businesses with specialist airline consulting, aviation legal services, and aircraft management services.
Always, always a delight to see women achieving great feats.
