[Sint Maarten] Winair honors Gerrit Draai
March 2, 2019


WINAIR honored Mr.Gerrit Draai who served as Vice President of WINAIR’S Supervisory Board of Directors from 2010 until his unfortunate passing in July of 2018, Mr.Draai with his keen eye and attention to detail was instrumental in the financial and operational turn around at WINAIR upon transfer of the shares of WINAIR to Country St. Maarten and the Netherlands after the dismantling of the former Netherland Antilles Mr. Draai was a retired Vice President of Martinair and a consummate airline professional with a 35 year plus career in the aviation industry.

Mr. Draai served with distinction and with his expertise assisted the WINAIR team with distinction and will be remembered by those of us who had the pleasure to work with Gerrit. As a consummate professional he was, he contributed to the success that WINAIR now enjoys.

Mrs. Maartje Draai his wife and lifetime partner was invited to SXM to attend a brief ceremony at WINAIR’s hanger to witness the naming of one of our aircraft in memory of Gerrit and receive a plaque of appreciation from the small group of the WINAIR team who worked with Gerrit with the mission of transforming WINAIR to become a viable and vital component of the regional Aviation Industry in the north east Caribbean. Gerrit will be missed, we say thank you Gerrit, rest in peace and job well done!
