Hong Kong Airlines has launched a new educational programme designed to introduce local children to a career in the aviation industry.

The carrier’s new ‘Triumph Sky High’ programme was launched at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) today, when 40 youngsters from the Ying Wa Primary School were invited to learn about aviation and experience life in the cockpit.

“A job in the aviation industry may well be the dream job for many youngsters. As a Hong Kong-based airline company, Hong Kong Airlines takes responsibility for nurturing aviation talent,” said the airline’s vice president, Sun Jianfeng.

During the inaugural event, Hong Kong Airlines staff led students through a range of different departments, including catering, ground operations and maintenance. They were also allowed into the cockpit of a Hong Kong Airlines aircraft.

Hong Kong Airlines said it will now organise similar programmes for all primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong.
