Senior execs flee troubled Safi

THREE senior executives of Afghan carrier Safi Airways have abruptly quit the airline.

Werner Borchert (executive vice-chairman, pictured), Claus Fischer (chief commercial officer) and Tom De Geytere (chief development officer) all announced their departure from the company at the same time.

In a statement, they said: “We have not seen any progress towards the commitments made by our Board and shareholders towards the executive team in terms of the restructuring. The shareholders and the executive team appear to have diverging views on the best way forward for Safi Airways, especially during the current challenging times with an EU ban on Afghan-registered aircraft and the complex solutions needed to overcome them and be successful in the future.”

Fischer will continue to advise the carrier in its ongoing IT migration.
