The country’s first Fijian female air traffic controller, Theresa O’Boyle-Levestam has been appointed acting chief executive officer of the Civil Aviation Authority of Fiji (CAAF).

She replaces Ajay Kumar who was also acting in that position.

Mrs O’Boyle Levestam when approached yesterday declined to comment saying the board would make a statement on her appointment.

She began her career as an air traffic control assistant in early 1992 and in 1996 she, became the first female air traffic controller in Fiji that was licensed.

In an earlier interview with the Fiji Sun, Mrs O’Boyle-Levestam said women were entitled to the same opportunities as men adding such opportunities were available in Fiji on a daily basis.

“It is important that gender equality as a core value is instilled in all our children at a young age so we continue to foster a culture of gender equality.
