ENTERING the final stages before the arrival of its first A330 airbus later this month, Air Pacific is conducting intensive training exercises for its 242 cabin crew.
The airline revealed the training exercise incorporates both cabin safety for the new A330, and refined service touches of the soon-to-be Fiji Airways onboard experience. More than 80 cabin crew have already attended the specialised A330 conversion training in Hong Kong at the Cathay Pacific Airways training facility.
Among the training skills taught, safety and emergency procedures were the most vital.
"Like every other aspect of our business, safety is top priority and is the first step in the training program for our cabin crew who will operate the airline's incoming flagship aircraft," said Air Pacific cabin crew manager Raelene Gibson.
"The next step as we prepare to receive the first of our A330s is the new and enhanced onboard guest experience aligned to providing our guests with authentic Fijian hospitality."
A four-day hospitality workshop was also conducted for the Air Pacific guest services team at the Training Centre at Nadi Airport.
