Wasaya Airways, which is currently celebrating its 25th year in operation, has announced that from 8 June Michael Rodyniuk will succeed Tom Morris as president and CEO.
“I am honoured to have been asked to lead Wasaya Airways,” Rodyniuk stated. “The good work the Board of Directors, their advisors and all the people on the Wasaya team have accomplished over the last number of months has positioned the airline for great success. I look forward to contributing and being a part of the Wasaya team, delivering a consistent, highly valued service to our inflight guests and freight customers whilst generating a profit for our shareholders and an excellent career path for First Nations people in aviation.”
Wasaya Airways commenced a turnaround plan in autumn 2014, with Rodyniuk hoping to improve on the operational efficiencies which have already been made. His previous experience, which spans 25 years, includes roles with Air Canada’s Zip Air and WestJet. Having held positions with the Winnipeg Airports Authority and in the Exchange Income Corporation’s aviation division, Rodyniuk is already experienced in working with First Nations communities.
Morris is retiring after 21 years with the company.
