In an effort to enhance its Emiratisation programme, Etihad Airways has posted two of its Emirati graduate engineers to Geneva to undergo on-the-job (OTJ) training with Etihad Regional, operated by Darwin Airline.
The two graduate engineers, Hamed Alredha and Ahmed Haisan, will spend three months at the maintenance facility in Geneva Airport, learning daily engineering checks and inspections, and fault repairs for the airline’s aircraft systems and cabins. Both trainees will work on the Saab 2000 turboprop aircraft, alongside and under supervision of top Etihad Regional engineers.
Etihad Airways’ Technical Engineering Development Programme currently has over 200 students. This programme prepares young UAE nationals for positions with the airline’s technical division.
