Elmar Conradie is CEO at FlySafair, based in South Africa. We discussed the challenges of doing business there, with pandemic and the collapse of the national carrier and growing competition from other private airlines.
It’s not an easy business and South African conditions are even more pressing. But Elmar did have some encouraging words on the Boeing MAX.
Co-Founder AirInsight. My previous life includes stints at Shell South Africa, CIC Research, and PA Consulting. Got bitten by the aviation bug and ended up an Avgeek. Then the data bug got me, making me a curious Avgeek seeking data-driven logic. Also, I appreciate conversations with smart people from whom I learn so much. Summary: I am very fortunate to work with and converse with great people.
