Opening Statement From Our President

''As most of you will now know, I will be taking over from Beau Giles as President of SWISS International VA (SIVA). It will be a challenge to fill the shoes of two past presidents who I can’t thank enough for the effort and passion they put into getting SIVA to where it is today.

I started off as the Digital Brand Director at SIVA, and this was a role that I throughly enjoyed fulfilling.

Fast forward to today and with the unfortunate resignation of our brilliant former presidents, I now speak to you as SIVA’s new president. I know all the past resignations inadvertently had an impact on SIVA during the last few months, and I truly do understand the struggle staff and pilots alike felt so I would like to so say a special thank you to everyone for their support. SIVA wouldn’t be the same without same without the dedication of our staff and of course all those who choose to fly the SWISS flag along side us.

I promise do my upmost to take SIVA above and beyond what is expected of a VA and hopefully restore the passion and make the SIVA community proud.’’

- Amir Hussein, President of SWISS International VA
