Buhazza wins public vote to enter SCATA Hall of Fame

June 7 - Maximus Air Cargo, the UAE's largest dedicated aircraft operator, walked away from the 2010 Supply Chain and Transport Awards (SCATA) held at Grosvenor House Hotel in Dubai with a brace of awards.

In a glittering event, Maximus was proclaimed Cargo Operator of the Year (Cargo Airline) and president and CEO Fathi H. Buhazza was initiated into the acclaimed 'Hall of Fame' (pictured below with the trophy).

SCATA, which is now in its fourth year, honours high achievers who have set benchmarks in the region and beyond. Maximus's Cargo Operator of the Year award recognised how "the airline had distinguished itself by delivering consistent industry-leading service in the Middle East and globally over the previous year," said a statement.

Buhazza was voted in with 43.5 percent of votes in the first-ever Hall of Fame award voted for by the public.

Buhazza said: ""Maximus Air Cargo's success at SCATA was indeed a great honour and reflects the hard work and expertise that the Maximus team have channelled into building what is now the region's strongest all cargo airline. We're proud and delighted and in the months ahead we can promise more exciting developments."
