- United Arab Emirates: Thursday, January 31 - 2013 at 14:51
Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has welcomed 41 Omani Guest Service Agents to its Airport Operations Department as part of its on-going recruitment drive in Oman launched in 2012.
Their specific duties include all flight handling activities, such as weighing and checking in baggage, issuing boarding passes and luggage labels, and allocating seat numbers.
An agent's primary function is to ensure the safety and security of passengers at the airport at all times.
Richard Hill, Chief Operations Officer, said: "We are delighted to welcome even more Omani Nationals to Etihad Airways, this time as Guest Service Agents. We know that their warm and friendly demeanour will be instrumental in assisting our passengers from the moment they enter the airport until they take off. "
Maher Al Riyami, one of the new Omani Guest Service agents, said: "Etihad Airways has such a fantastic reputation as a fair and supportive employer in the Emirati community, and I am very excited to join an airline that has achieved so much in a few years."
"Working in the Airport Operations department is both challenging and enjoyable. We deal with new situations every day, and learn the skills we need to provide outstanding service to passengers."
The Etihad Airways' Omani recruitment campaign has reached its target of employing 400 Omani Nationals by end of 2012 and has recently won the Recruitment Programme of the Year Award at the Middle East HR Excellence Awards.
