Rexy Rolle: The Woman Who Runs The Larget Black-Owned Airline In The World

Rexy got into the aviation business since she was only 12 years of age and has never looked back.

Rexy Rolle is from Andros, Bahamas and the current Vice President of Operations and General Counsel for Western Air, a Bahamian airline. According to her website: "Rexy has worked with her parents in aviation since she was just 12 years old and in recent years has made waves in the industry by helping to expand the family’s airline business." 

One of those rare people who are multi-talented, she is also an attorney, an artist, and a lover of the music. Her website tells her story that says, "Rexy's parents Rex and Shandrice Rolle helped to foster her love for aviation & business, her Dad began his career as a private pilot & flight instructor, and her mom, began as a newly- graduated international business major when the couple founded Western Air in 2001."

It further reveals that, "From placing baggage tags on passenger luggage after school, to picking out aircraft paint schemes, traveling to observe airplane inspections, to sitting on aircraft tires & GPUs in their living room, Rexy is most grateful to her parents for involving her in the business at an early age and instilling an unapologetic, tough work ethic."

Her impressive business acumen can be gauged from her achievements mentioned on her website which reveals that "In 2015, Rexy spearheaded the opening of a private passenger terminal, inclusive of its own airport security screening department & full service maintenance facility in Freeport, Grand Bahama. As an Aviation & Business Lawyer by trade, Rexy orchestrated the acquisition of two additional Saab 340A aircrafts and four Embraer 145LR Jets thus far."

Needless to say, she is an ambitious and talented woman who is reaching new heights every day. An inspiration to many, she has been handling multi-million dollar business transactions and has been instrumental in becoming a force to reckon in the aviation business.
