New ATCL chief sees bright days ahead

Capt Lusajo
The newly appointed Acting Air Tanzania Company Lmited (ATCL) CEO, Captain Milton Lusajo Lazaro, has expressed optimism that ATCL has a brighter future if the company's five year development plan is implemented.

Captain Lusajo said in a statement issued on Wednesday that he would use his vast experience in the aviation industry not only to make ATCL competitive but also a world class air service provider.

Capt. Lusajo is a respected member of the aviation industry not only in East Africa but Africa as a whole. He has over 12,000 flying hours and held various positions in the Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA) and ATCL prior to his latest appointment.

"Am so grateful for the minister's confidence in me and do accept this appointment with humility. My assurance is that I will use my 35 years of experience in the aviation industry to give ATCL a competitive edge. 

Most important I count on the support and commitment of my colleagues and the ATCL team in order to achieve our objectives as well as meeting public expectations," he said.

Capt. Lazaro said the company will not have any interruptions in service delivery during ATCL's operations, adding that all the company's flights will continue to take off and land as scheduled even after the change in management.

“There is no reason for the public to worry. What has happened is change of guards but the company's plans and focus remains intact," he said.

Capt. Lazaro added that he was focused to increasing ATCL's fleet through acquisition of new airplanes via purchase and leasing facilities, in a bid to consolidate the company's position both domestically and internationally in the next few years.

"ATCL cannot achieve such success without public and government support. I call upon the public to continue with the spirit of patriotism they have shown within a few weeks after the resumption of our company's services.

"My assurance to the public is that my company will continue to give excellent products at competitive lower prices as compared to other service providers in the market," he said.
