Training Solutions marks training its 750th VIP flight attendant

Training Solutions, the Swiss based flight attendant training education specialist, has welcomed the 750th VIP flight attendant to its customer service excellence training course.

Dietmar Duller, the founder and course leader of Training Solutions, said, “In order to raise the level of service in the cabin onboard business jets you must start with education. The flight attendant is the link between the company and the client, so educating them and providing them with the tools to exceed their client expectations is essential.“

Since 2007 Duller has conducted over 110 training courses in 10 countries throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa, with each training course lasting between two to four days. Training topics include private jet specific table setting, serving luxury food items, personalized tea and beverage service, food safety and HACCP, in-flight childcare excellence and cultural differences, plus many other soft skills.

For the fifth consecutive year, the monthly open participation courses for existing and future VIP flight attendants are being offered in Geneva, Switzerland. Flight attendants with a commercial aviation background successfully use these courses as a path to becoming a VIP flight attendant.
