HAPPY NEW YEAR!
We welcome the New Year in high spirit and big dreams. 2017 has been a very busy year for us. We’ve been building our fleet of air crafts so that we may compete on an international level and with ongoing charters we certainly had our hands full. In August we were able to kick start our blog; The Safe Air Journal. To be honest, we are still new to the online community and so this is a learning experience. Our ultimate goal for this platform is transparency. We would like our online content to accurately display the quality of our services. By being authentic we can share our evolution as a company to the world.
Furthermore, we would like to also invite you to visit our facebook page. Click the link below:
EVERYTHING CAN CHANGE WITHIN A YEAR
As the year comes to end, we would like to take time to reflect on all the great things that came as a result of hard work. Everything can change within a years time. We really looking forward to a new year with new opportunities. December is not only a month of festivities, but also a month of deadlines and commitments. The entire aviation industry is busy preparing for annual reports and renewing of licences. This month should also be a time of reflection. Safe Air Company has experienced major growth this year thanks to our amazing team.
We wish you success and much accomplishment. The big life changes don’t happen overnight: Give yourself some time. Put in the necessary effort. Keep at it. You’ll be surprised with what can happen in a year. With all that being said, on behalf of Safe Air Company, I wish everyone a happy and healthy year ahead. I hope you have a peaceful holiday season and look forward to 2018.

HOW TO STAY COOL WHEN IT GETS HOT
Loading cargo in Berbera, Somali is no easy task. Imagine lifting heavy boxes in the blazing heat; over 40 degrees Celsius. East Africa is home to very hot and humid conditions. This can put an extra strain on cargo movement and greatly increase the risk of developing heat-related illnesses. Our team has been working in the heat all month long. The risk can be more serious and widespread among the loading crew. Before working in these conditions our staff are trained on how to take protective measures. At safe air company we value the health and well-being of our entire team. Here is a shortlist of life-saving rules on how to operate in hot weather.
How to Operate in Hot Weather:
- Take Regular Breaks
- Drink plenty of water
- Wear loose, light-colored clothing
- Designate an area with shade for resting
- Add extra personnel to physically demanding load
WELCOME SYED MAZHER!
We would like you to meet the newest addition to our Safe Air family. With more than 5,000 hours under his belt, Syed was a seasoned pilot in Congo before coming to Nairobi. Prior to his arrival, he was operating a Boeing 727, N262, LET410 and a PA34. We are privileged to have him join us with all his expertise and knowledge of aviation. Syed was kindly willing to share a few words with us. Please see the interview below:
Q: How is your new job?
My first impression of Safe Air was good. There is a good working environment which makes it easy to share ideas. I like how the CEO directly communicates with everyone. There is a feeling of equality here. It feels more like a family than a company. I believe that it is wise to choose your boss rather than choosing a job.
Q: How do you like Nairobi?
Nairobi is one of the best aviation hubs in East Africa. It has great operating procedures in terms of cargo and passenger handling. It is also leading the region in regards to Safety and security which is very important in the aviation industry. Nairobi has the potential for major growth in the next few years.
Q: What are your future plans?
I want to be a captain. Right now I am operating narrow body aircrafts but I hope to be a captain of a wide body aircraft in the future
