[www.inewsguyana.com] – Copa Airlines has started to receive applications from prospective Guyanese employees for several positions it will create locally.
According to a press release from the Company, the Airline started advertising for several positions last month as part of its preparations to begin service to Guyana from July 11, 2014.
According to airline executives, several positions are to be created locally including Sales Manager, Airport Supervisors, Sales Executives, Inside Sales Representatives and Sales counter agents.
The company expects to conclude the selection process by the end of March.
“Once the hiring process has been concluded, the airline will begin its training process with the selected staff,” the Company noted.
Copa Airlines announced in January its intention to begin operating two weekly flights out of Guyana in July. The flights will link Guyana to Copa’s Hub of the Americas at Tocumen International Airport in Panama, thus increasing travel options and improving connections throughout Copa Airlines’ extensive route network.
Additionally, the airline expects that this will allow Guyanese passengers easier access to 69 destinations in 30 countries while opening the country’s tourism products to more markets.
