Air Malta’s cabin crew get their wings
Air Malta has awarded its new group of cabin crew with their wings at the airline’s training centre at Skyparks during the first ‘Wings Ceremony’ to be held by Air Malta over the past years.
The wings ceremony is the celebration of an intense four week training course that all cabin crew have to complete before starting their flying career with Air Malta.
Air Malta’s Chief Commercial Officer Philip Saunders, said that wings ceremonies are always special and it is with great pride that Airmalta started organising such events to celebrate the success of the company’s new cabin crew.
Mr Saunders concluded that, “Every flight has a special meaning for our passengers. Some travel to visit friends and relatives who they may have not met in years, others travel for a holiday of a life time, others travel for business or for health reasons. It is thus important that as cabin crew you make each and every passenger feel special.”
All the new cabin crew previously held positions within the airline and were selected following an internal call for applications. Apart from being presented with their ‘wings’ and their license to operate as cabin crew, awards were also presented to the course top achiever, Christopher Aquilina who scored an impressive average of 97% in the tests and exams and the most humorous course member, Violet Sciberras.
Also present for this ceremony were Chief Officer Flight Operations Capt. Mark Micallef Eynaud, Head of Cabin Crew and In-Flight Services Charlene Bebiano Oliveira, Crew Training Post Holder Capt. Martin Ferrando and course instructors Joe Fava, Charles Abdilla, Godwin Grech, Oliver Magri, Joseph Camilleri and Christopher Gove`.
