Air Malta's latest group of cabin crew were awarded with their 'wings' during a ceremony held recently at the airline's hangar at Malta International Airport.
The wings ceremony is the culmination and celebration of the intensive training course which was spread over a period of seven weeks. All cabin crew had to complete and successfully pass this training before they are able to fly with any EASA approved airline.
During this event Mr Philip Micallef, Air Malta's Chief Executive said, "we are proud to have you on-board as part of the Air Malta team this summer. In your role you will be at the forefront representing the National Airline with pride wherever we fly."
"The airline prides itself of offering a warm and friendly service and as cabin crew you are an important part of our team to make each and every passenger feel special. Apart from being entrusted with our passenger's safety we count on you to provide our guests with the best in class customer experience," added Mr Micallef.
The group was selected for training following a public expression of interest issued last year for individuals to attend a cabin crew initial training course. This was followed by an interview to select candidates to join Air Malta's temporary cabin crew compliment.
The course covered various areas including knowledge of aviation regulations, safety management and aircraft systems, emergency procedures, crew resource management, security procedures, first aid, customer care and food hygiene awareness.
Present for this ceremony were also Capt. Alex Muscat, Chief Officer Flight Operations, Mr. Roberto Cristiano, Chief Officer Human Resources and Joe Fava, Acting Head of Cabin Crew and In-Flight Services, together with various course instructors.
