Once you hand the letter to her, she becomes aware of Zawadi’s condition and leaves for New Atlantis immediately. She also rewards you with an additional 3000 Credits for completing the mission.

Returning to New Atlantis

If you choose to return to New Atlantis after completing the mission, you can spot Zawardi and Haddie talking to each other in front of the Mercury Tower. This is their last meet-up since Zawadi’s fate seems to be locked with some sort of condition.
