Fiji Airports paid out $1,135,000 in bonuses to 540 of its work colleagues, at an average of $2,100 per person. Bonus was paid out in 3 tiers starting at $1,500; $2,000 and 6% of salary; but excluded senior executives who are not entitled to across the board bonuses. The bonus will be given to staff tomorrow.
Fiji Airports CEO, Faiz Khan said “These bonuses before Christmas are given across the board to majority of our colleagues based on the success of our company. This year we received recognition at the prestigious Prime Minister’s Awards for the Supreme Award; received Silver Awards in Asia Pacific for Green Airports; and received level 2 carbon accreditation certification. In addition, we have successfully delivered a number of infrastructure and systems related projects designed to improve the services we provide to our customers both as an airport operator and as an air navigation service provider (ANSP). Fiji Airports is unique in that it is the only airport in the region and most of the world that manages its airports (15) and it’s ANSP.”
“With the surveillance upgrades for our ANSP; the multiple runway enhancement projects in outer islands such as Levuka and Lakeba that are completed; with Kadavu and Labasa commencing in the new year; with Nausori runway upgrades 40% complete; and with the $3 billion to be spent over the next 25 years on the Nadi Airport Master Plan that is now into its implementation phase; we have challenging yet exciting times ahead. More than ever before we need to be prudent in our financial management of resources, work strategically and as a coherent team rowing towards our goals,” said Khan.
“This bonus payment is not based on individual performances but based on how the organization performed as a whole. Throughout the year the company, in addition, continuously recognises individuals who excel in their performances. We have seen our people grow and continue to be hungry to grow further. This is our main area of focus. However, the entire team, each and every colleague of ours, strives and works hard to deliver results. In the spirit of team these across the board bonuses are given out of profits to all our colleagues,” added Khan
“We thank our Board of Directors and shareholders for their ongoing support. We also thank the Hon. PM, and the Hon. AG and Minister responsible for Civil Aviation for approving these bonuses to our work colleagues,” concluded Khan
