We’re better in bed: Virgin Atlantic recruits more Nigerian cabin crew
Virgin Atlantic Airways, one of Britain’s leading international carriers, has employed 15 new ‘bright and passionate’ Nigerian cabin crew on its Lagos – London route to help maintain the high standards of service it has become famous for.
Virgin Atlantic pioneered the recruitment of Nigerian crew to join their work force in 2001, making Virgin Atlantic the first international airline to introduce indigenous Nigerian crew.
The investment in new recruits reflects Virgin Atlantic’s commitment to the Nigerian market and a further opportunity to invest in the people by providing local employment, amongst other things Virgin Atlantic is known for.
The Country Manager West Africa, Mr. Nick Taylor said; “Virgin Atlantic is firmly committed to delivering world class customer service both on the ground and on board all our aircraft. Our Nigerian crew have always been instrumental in not only upholding these unrivalled standards but also ensuring that the needs of our valued customers on the Lagos route are served with an understanding of local expectation and culture as well as a plentiful helping of West African flair!
“Our latest recruits, chosen from over 4000 applicants in Nigeria not only successfully completed a stringent recruitment process but then excelled in what was a very involved and demanding 6 week training course in London. They have deservedly earned their Cabin Crew Wings and I’m very proud to welcome all of them to the Virgin Atlantic family”
Being a Virgin Atlantic cabin crew comes with a lot of responsibility, as they serve as brand ambassadors on the flight, providing a safe comfortable and friendly service to our esteemed passengers at 37,000feet.
