Thirty local flight attendants have been afforded the chance to attain international certification in their field as Travelspan dispatched the first batch of 14 persons for training in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA yesterday. The airline is gearing
for others to be sent on training by month end.
During a press conference at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport’s executive lounge to introduce the airline employees, General Manager of the US-based company, Vanita Jagnarine expressed delight at being able to facilitate the prospective attendants.
She told the media that the three-week training programme which is being conducted at the Vision Airlines facility in Las Vegas will allow the attendants to be certified under the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) which would enable them to attain employment in the field internationally. Vision airline is also Travelspan’s partnership company in the offer of non-stop flights between Georgetown and New York.
Jagnarine was especially proud that Travelspan has been the first and only company to offer such opportunities to young prospective flight attendants. She told the media that a lot of money is being invested in the initiative to train the locals overseas. “It just goes to show our investment basically in providing a committed service to Guyana. We wouldn’t have been making this investment unless we wanted to stay in the Guyana market.”
She related that the company was operational in 2008 and later took a hiatus for financial reasons but has resumed with better service. The General Manager expressed confidence on the Guyana –New York route and brushed off fear of competition in light of decent flight loads and full support of travelers. She said that the initial focus will be on that route which she described as lucrative.
However flights to Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago as well as vacation packages to the Dominican Republic have commenced.
