The global outbreak of the novel coronavirus has hit the world in unprecedented ways. None of the industries have remained unaffected by the pandemic. And when we say that, even the aviation industry is no exception to it. But now, after months of having international and domestic flights completely under suspension, the situation is gradually gaining a semblance of normalcy. The airports are now reopening, with a limited number of flights being allowed to run. And, as the air transport sector gets back to serving the nation once again, the aviation professionals have a major role to play in ensuring the utmost safety in the operations.
It goes without saying that delivering an exceptional level of customer service to the passengers comes naturally to an aviation professional. However, we, at Avlon Shisha Niketan, believe that there is a serious need at present for the aviation professionals to go above and beyond their usual services to make sure that the comfort of the customers is not sacrificed while paying attention to securing their health. After all, being among the emergency workers on the frontline in the fight against the pandemic, the responsibilities of the aviation crew increases manifold.
So, on that note, let’s take a closer look today at how our aviation professionals are strengthening our fight against coronavirus, and the impact of the current scenario on the future entrants to the field.
The evolving roles of aviation professionals in fighting the pandemic
There is no doubt about the fact that the roles and responsibilities shouldered by the aviation industry have amplified several times ever since the COVID outbreak has taken place. Many new responsibilities have been added to the list in the current scenario. For instance, maintaining the safety of the passengers and serving them with a smile has always been an important aspect of the job for the cabin crew and the ground staff. But, now they have the added responsibility to ensure that the passengers are eased into their journey and assured of comfort and convenience, even with the ongoing crisis being faced by the country.
It is also important to mention that the means of maintaining safety have also been redefined. After all, ensuring passenger safety didn’t really entail temperature checks, sanitizers, and masks before the pandemic hit us. But, it has become crucial to maintain such protocols at all times for complete mitigation of health risks now. The fact is that even the slightest mistake in following the health and safety protocols can have a far-reaching impact in the current pandemic scenario. And, while serving the passengers with a smile, the aviation professionals are having to be extra cautious in maintaining their own health and safety for the greater good of the people they serve.
Thus, even though the daily footfall in any airport has lessened considerably, the roles and responsibilities of the aviation professionals have increased tremendously. And one of their most important responsibility at present is to continue catering to the needs of the people without bowing down to the mounting pressure and health and safety.
The significance of training and guidance for crisis management
After deliberating on the present roles of the aviation professionals, it is crucial to outline that these responsibilities cannot completely come from being trained on the job. We believe that being on the field can further refine your skills, but the seeds of brilliance have to be sown at the initial stage. And, this is where Avlon Shiksha Niketan comes into the picture as a leading Aviation Training Institute in Kolkata that prepares you for the future challenges and your upcoming roles.
At Avlon, we firmly believe that the grooming and guidance offered to young professionals has a critical role to play in preparing them to deal with such crises. It is after all one of the many demands of working in the highly lucrative aviation industry to be able to diligently manage difficult situations, as and when they arise.
When we, at Avlon Shiksha Niketan, train our students in the theoretical and real-world aspects of being in the aviation sector, we essentially empower them to be dauntless in handling any trials and tribulations that come in their way due to the nature of their job. And to offer the finest training to our learners, we have roped in a team of highly qualified and best-in-industry faculty having rich industry experience. Our mentors, with their own experiences of expertly meeting the demands of the profession, ensure that the students have a clear idea of how to rise up to the varied job responsibilities.
Furthermore, we have industry partnerships to extend internship opportunities to our students in order to give them a practical outlook into the job before they embark on their professional journeys through our placement programs.
We firmly believe that such a comprehensive approach towards training the budding aviation aspirants is significant in order to make them resilient and strong enough to stand the test of times.
The future scenario for aviation aspirants in the post-pandemic world
Going by the present scenario in the country and beyond, we believe that the new roles of the aviation professionals, as brought in by the pandemic, will continue to shape the professional lives of the future aspirants joining the field. After all, even after the shadow of the pandemic leaves us, the lessons learnt in safety, health, and hygiene will continue to assume the same significance. And, being prepared to take on the added responsibilities that it brings along will be critical in paving the path of success for future aviation professionals.
This is why it is essential that our efforts towards training the future aviation professionals to shine bright in their roles of tomorrow start from today. Being the only institute in the country to offer exclusive BBA degree course in the three core service industries namely Tourism, Aviation and Hospitality, we, at Avlon Shiksha Niketan, understand the value of standing out and making your mark. And, we make sure that our students stand out by virtue of their exceptional skillset, in-depth knowledge, and absolute dedication to their job.
