The graduation of the first batch of mechanics from our Aircraft Mechanics Apprenticeship Programme lays the pathway for the future development of the airline. We believe this programme will also benefit the wider community, particularly young people who are interested in becoming aircraft mechanics. I congratulate the first batch of Aircraft Mechanics graduates and welcome them to our rapidly-expanding group.”
