Monaghan Institute Cabin Crew students visit airport for training

As part of their cabin crew training, Monaghan Institute Tourism students recently visited Waterford airport. Students had an insightful day gaining hands on experience on board the training aircraft cabin, including practicing in safety demonstrations and serving food and beverages in an authentic setting.

‘The opportunity to gain a real insight into cabin features is invaluable to our students and gives them a real life experience of a day in the life of a cabin crew member’ Melanie Keith Tourism Course Co-ordinator.

Grainne Corr, Tourism student, explained of the trip ‘We had a really enjoyable experience in Waterford airport.  It was great to put the theory we have learned in class into practice.  We found it an excellent team building exercise.’

Airlines are currently actively recruiting for Cabin Crew based in Ireland and abroad so now is the ideal time to look at this as a career path. 90% of candidates fail their airline cabin crew interview, due to lack of knowledge and training. This Tourism course in Monaghan Institute prepares students for the highly competitive airline interviews and training, once recruited.

As part of their course, Monaghan Institute students are studying Cabin Crew Operations and Ready To Fly. If you are ‘Ready to Fly’ enrol on our Tourism and Travel course for the next academic year.
