Sky’s the limit for Tigerair Australia’s six new Indigenous cabin crew graduates

May 23, 2019 Aviation No Comments Email Email

Following their milestone graduation from Tigerair Australia’s (Tigerair) Cabin Crew Ground School last week, the airline’s newest Indigenous Cabin Crew members have today helped Indigenous NRL stars including Josh Addo-Carr and Will Chambers unveil Melbourne Storm’s special Indigenous Round jerseys ahead of their match this Sunday.

Tigerair, the official airline of Melbourne Storm, has partnered with the club this weekend to auction off the 17 specially designed jerseys with all proceeds going to the Dardi Muwurrow charity which focuses on Indigenous family violence support.

It comes one week after Tigerair celebrated the graduation of six new Cabin Crew members – more than a quarter of the latest Cabin Crew Ground School – who identify as Indigenous. This represents the largest intake of Indigenous Cabin Crew members ever recorded in one Tigerair Ground School.

Tigerair CEO, Merren McArthur said: “We are proud to welcome our newest Indigenous cabin crew graduates to the Tigerair team. We are committed to providing positive and sustainable employment outcomes for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workforce, to not only provide a platform for future Indigenous applicants, but also allow our workforce to reflect the community we serve and the customers that choose to fly with us each day”.

Partnering with Diversity Dimensions, an organisation that specialises in employment to help provide meaningful opportunities for Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander individuals, Tigerair’s latest graduating class proved the sky really is the limit for their high-flying careers.

The graduates Igary, Charity, Jaide, Ricky, Chelsea and Jasmine successfully completed their initial training course alongside 15 other trainees at the Cabin Crew Ground School and graduated at a ceremony held at the Tigerair Headquarters in Melbourne.

The six graduates are from a range of different locations across Australia, including, Brisbane, Taree on NSW’s mid-north coast, Echuca, Cooee in north-west Tasmania, Coffs Harbour and Melbourne, and are now officially taking their first shifts in the sky.

The Cabin Crew Ground School runs over five weeks and is a comprehensive training course that equips the participants with all the necessary skills needed for a career in the air.
