Laureano Almeida, who carried out an impressive and dedicated career as an Aircraft Maintenance Technician from May 1957 to 1994 and became a true SATA hallmark, fondly remembers one of the most beautiful episodes he experienced on a flight originating at Lajes Field, on Terceira Island, to Santana Aerodrome, on São Miguel Island, where a fully dressed bride in a wedding dress and veil came on board.
“Because I had to register in the navigation log, I was still there, tied to the gray leather chair with a sharp back, in that small and tight space that I respectfully considered a sanctuary for bringing me closer to heaven and God. Looking out the window, I noticed that happy bride walking towards the terminal, as steady and as sure as a white dove trying its wings. Beautiful is my land where for love brides go from island to island to get married”.
Endearing stories like this make SATA Azores Airlines a unique airline in the world.
