flydubai has announced the successful graduation of its 100th batch of certified Cabin Crew members from the flydubai Training Centre. The batch of 27 candidates will join flydubai’s community of 1,650 Cabin Crew members who represent more than 100 nationalities.
The graduates of the training programme received their certificates from Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer for flydubai, Jilly Sims, Senior Vice President, In-Flight Services for flydubai and Carolyn O’Brien, flydubai’s Cabin Crew Training Manager.
Speaking at the ceremony, Ghaith Al Ghaith said: “Over the past eight years, flydubai has trained thousands of Cabin Crew who have applied their learnings to make flying a pleasant experience for the millions of passengers who travel with us each year. I would like to congratulate each graduate on their achievement and the highly skilled and professional trainers who have helped us reach this important milestone.”
The five-week programme trains candidates in a wide range of subjects, including customer service, medical care, safety and security. Candidates must pass all of their practical and theoretical exams, along with their assessments, to complete the training course and graduate as a flydubai Cabin Crew member.
Carolyn O’Brien added: “This is a unique training programme that focuses on imparting skills and knowledge critical to passenger assistance, in-flight safety applications, in-flight medical care, aviation security and emergency response. I am confident that our newly graduated batch will join their colleagues in being high performing Cabin Crew members within the flydubai family.”
flydubai’s training facilities were opened in 2010 and are located at Dubai Airport Freezone and flydubai’s headquarters. The facilities offer graduates a realistic learning environment through a variety of cabin and training simulators along with a team of highly qualified trainers.
