Members of the Airports Taxi Association (ATA) stepped into the new month with new uniforms.
They wore their new uniforms with pride on February 1 after self-sponsoring their own attires from Sanda Designs.
The small group of 12 drivers are usually parked outside the airport with their vehicles prepped to escort tourists arriving in the country.
“This is a momentous moment in our line of work, since first impressions is very important, especially to tourists visiting our country,” said ATA Representative Moses Tharo.
“The uniforms are specifically designed. Each pattern portrays its own meaning. The Blue color depicts the color of the sky and the Vanuatu printed flag represents our country.”
General Manager Operations for Airports Vanuatu Limited (AVL) Kevin Dick Abel spoke on behalf of AVL CEO Jason Rakau, by thanking the ATA for being dependent and taking matters of improving and upgrading their work into their own hands.
“The initiative comes from the ATA,” GM Abel commented.
“The Association works closely with AVL, we’re happy as this will be seen as part of the upgrades to Bauerfield Airport image.”
