A group of 24 Kinjo Gakuin University students from Nagoya, Japan attended a bespoke Flight Attending short course at New Zealand School of Tourism, at the Auckland Airport campus last month.
Specially designed for the group, the short course also included a session from Cut Above Academy to add hair and makeup training to the Flight Attending skills being taught. Immaculate grooming is an essential element of Flight Attending and the students soaked up the additional tips and hints they learnt.
