Hong Kong Airlines gives back by hosting 20th edition of “Triumph Sky High” Junior Programme

December 11, 2017 Aviation No Comments Email Email

Hong Kong Airlines held the 20th edition of its popular “Triumph Sky High” Junior Programme, which saw 30 primary school students from Kwong Ming School score an exclusive, behind-the-scene look into the airline’s operations.The aviation experience tour comprised of a tour of Hong Kong Airlines’ catering provider Gate Gourmet, followed by a trip to the airline’s check-in counters at Hong Kong International Airport. Rounding things off was a visit to the Midfield Concourse, where students boarded a Hong Kong Airlines aircraft to learn about the various duties of Hong Kong Airlines’ pilots and flight attendants.

The best way to learn is to gain actual first-hand experience, and this was exactly what the students benefitted from. Not only were they able to learn about flight safety by putting on life jackets, but they were also given the chance to visit the aircraft’s cockpit and galley in order to make inflight announcements and even serve meals to passengers.

Describing the experience as “unforgettable”, student Sam who hopes to one day become a pilot said: “I always knew that pilot training would be an extremely challenging experience. However, after getting the chance to visit the cockpit of an aircraft, and learning directly from pilots, it makes me even more passionate about my dream.”

Fellow student Elise – who sampled the food at Gate Gourmet – noted that she had developed a new level of appreciation for inflight meals, after witnessing the intricate process involved in the preparation, cooking and uploading of food to be served onboard.
“I honestly loved the taste of the food that we were served at Gate Gourmet. I look forward to my next flight with Hong Kong Airlines, where I will be able to dine in the air.”
