ExecuJet welcomes local Gogos to high tea

ExecuJet in South Africa welcomed 30 grandmothers (Gogos) from its local community to a luxury high tea at ExecuJet’s facility at Lanseria International Airport on 22 August 2017. Dressed in their Sunday best, the Gogos, from the Refilwe Clinic in Gauteng, also had the opportunity to see an aircraft up close for the very first time.

The ladies were accompanied by an ExecuJet representative who was on-hand to answer their aviation-related questions. The tables were hosted by various departments within ExecuJet including senior management, Accounts, Charter, FBO, Lounge, Marketing and Reception, as well as Lanseria International Airport, Legacy Hotel Group and BMW Melrose Arch.

As the Gogos arrived, they were played in by talented violinist Grace Mbokoto – part of ExecuJet’s own FBO Accounts team and a member of Southern African Women in Aviation (SAWIA). Local company Holistic Healing Hands was also present to give every Gogo a massage, and ensure they left the event fully pampered.

Graeme Duckworth, VP ExecuJet Africa and EVP MRO Services, Luxaviation Group says: “Since being based at Lanseria International Airport, ExecuJet has been opening up its facilities to those in the community that may never have had access to aircraft. Hosting this fun high tea for these ladies who are so respected within the community is just a part of how we strive to be good corporate citizens wherever we are based around the globe. It is through women that the leaders of tomorrow are born and we hope today has been educational, as well as completely enjoyable, for those who took part.”

This event follows a summer of community projects by ExecuJet, who last month celebrated Mandela Day with forty children from Johannesburg’s community schools.
