ĐÀ NẴNG — Representatives of Japan Airlines (JAL) will co-operate with Đông Á College in human resources training for its airline and ground services in Japan from 2020, marking the JAL’s first-ever manpower training programme abroad.
Director of JAL, Toshio Ito released the information at a working meeting with the Đà Nẵng-based college last week, stating that the airline would recruit qualified graduated students from foreign language and hospitality sections at the college from next year.
He said it’s the first time the airline has proposed a human resource joint-training programme outside of Japan, and Đông Á college was a suitable partner for JAL in the future.
JAL plans to employ 600 to 800 students from the college for its eight subsidiaries and major airports of Narita, Haneda and Kansai.
According to vice head of Đông Á College, Lương Minh Sâm, JAL will send experts to train students at the college’s campus in Đà Nẵng and Quảng Nam under the airline’s standard qualification for practical student enrolment and official employment.
He said JAL also agreed to offer internships from six months to one year for hospitality students working at JAL’s hotel in Japan.
JAL has eight subsidised airlines with a 279-aircraft fleet connecting 220 destinations in 35 countries in the world.
Direct flights were launched by local airlines from Đà Nẵng to Narita, Osaka, Haneda, and more air routes have been planned from the city to Hokkaido, Nagoya as well as transit flights linking Đà Nẵng with Fukuoka, Sapporo, Sendai and Niigata.
