As part of its ongoing commitment to corporate sustainability, wet lease operator Hi Fly has recently started a series of sustainability training workshops for its cabin crew.
The company has coupled with its sustainability arm, the Mirpuri Foundation, to ensure that its staff are fully au fait with the important work that the airline and the foundation have been doing in the sustainability area.
Speaking ahead of the workshops, Hi Fly and Mirpuri Foundation president Paulo Mirpuri said: “The first aim of the staff-training programme is to build the best teams we can, to make the Hi Fly experience as positive as possible for the passengers. But the programme is about more than that. It also aims to help our crew members themselves to be better citizens.”
He continued: “We always believed that if you can inspire a core group, then they, in turn, will inspire others. So, as we make rapid progress towards our goal of Hi Fly flying its entire fleet plastic-free by the end of this year, it’s important that our crews understand not only what we are doing, but why we are doing it.
“We believe they will see that we are making these efforts for a better planet and for the benefit of their children and their children’s children. If we can get this simple message across, our staff will be better motivated in their jobs and in their ability to explain our intent and message to Hi Fly passengers and customers.”
As well as the training related directly to the sustainability practices of Hi Fly, crew members in training are also able to learn about some of the other stories of the Mirpuri Foundation.
