New Trainees for airberlin technik

It’s back-to-school time in the U.S. and in Germany where airberlin technik welcomed 17 new students for its trainee program, bringing the rosters up to approximately 100 trainees. The MRO provides line and base maintenance for airberlin group and other airlines such as Etihad Airways and Emirates.

The students spent their first day touring airberlin technik’s Dusseldorf base where they will train to become aircraft maintenance mechanics, aviation systems electricians or office administrators. The base expanded in 2009 with the addition of Hangar 7, the largest airport hangar in the North Rhine-Westphalia region.

Tobias Hundhausen, airberlin technik’s senior VP for production and accountable manager, welcomed the students, speaking about the importance of developing new talent for business. “With each new apprenticeship, we invest in the future of young people and the future of the company,” Hundhausen said.

It sounds like it’s time to sharpen those pencils.
