Tigerair Australia has welcomed the graduation of the first group of its new Queensland cabin crew recruits following an intensive four and a half weeks of training, with the crew now ready to take up their positions ahead of the launch of the new Brisbane base on 11 March.
A second group of cabin crew will join them before the base opens so as to fill the 50 cabin crew/cabin crew manager positions required to facilitate the base’s opening.
Head of inflight services, Amanda Craig says that Tigerair has been impressed by the talent pool in Brisbane. “We’ve been really happy with the professionalism and high calibre of candidates in Queensland. The response to our recruitment drive has been fantastic,” Craig remarked. “Tigerair is a brand that is all about enabling everyday Australians to see more of their backyard more often. We’ve been keen to recruit people with the right customer-focused attitude and a ‘can do’ spirit, as well as having some mandatory pre-requisites.
“Tigerair is thrilled to be expanding services in Australia and creating a significant number of jobs for the state of Queensland in the process,” she added.
The four and a half week cabin crew training course includes safety, emergency and standard operating procedures as well as customer service delivery, to name a few. After graduation, the cabin crew undertake observational training in flight, followed by a final flight check, before being ready to take to begin operations on 11 March.
