Hong Kong Airlines has revived and relaunched its Junior Programme, with brand new activities taking place at the HKA Training Academy instead of the airport. Jointly designed by accredited safety and customer service trainers at the airline, Junior Programme offers students an exclusive access to some of the most advanced training facilities in the region, as well as opportunities to engage directly with pilots and cabin crew to fuel their passion in aviation. Working in tandem with Techbob Academy, an aviation-themed STEAM workshop is also included in the programme to cultivate innovation and critical thinking, which are critical to the development of young people.
“With close of 15 years of flying, Hong Kong Airlines is not just known for its value products but also for its passion for service and outreach activities for young people in the community,” said Ricky Chong, Director of Corporate Governance and Development.
“As the pandemic situation improves in Hong Kong, we are once again delighted to engage students and show them what it takes to make a safe and great airline to fly,” he added.
Since the inception of Junior Programme in 2014, Hong Kong Airlines has hosted more than 1,100 students over the years. The carrier has also participated in virtual aviation camps organized by Hong Kong International Aviation Academy (HKIAA), with pilots and cabin crew sharing at these sessions.
