New Delhi: Private carrier Jet Airways, which expects its aviation academy to be functional from early next year here, has said it will set up similar centres in Delhi and Kolkata to cater to the growing in-house and industry demand. “We have received provisional clearance for our aviation training academy and we expect to receive a formal nod from the Corporate Affairs Ministry shortly,” sources close to the development told PTI.
Initially, the airline had planned to set up the academy in Mumbai alone. “But with queries coming in from other cities, we have decided to expand it to Delhi and Kolkata as well along with Mumbai,” sources said.
In its 2012 annual report, the Naresh Goyal-owned carrier had told its shareholders it will create two subsidiary ventures for setting up a marketing services company and an aviation training academy.
As part of the plan, the academy will run certificate courses, ranging between one-and-half month to three months in the areas such as cabin crew, airport services like ticketing, check-ins, and security apart from crew resources management and personality enhancement.
