Air Serbia has celebrated the graduation of nine young Serbians from a career development programme with Etihad Airways. They have now taken managerial posts at Air Serbia. The nine graduates are the first group of Serbians to finish the Etihad Graduate Management Programme (EGMP), a 24 to 30 month-long development course introduced in 2013 with the aim of developing human resources at Air Serbia. The comprehensive course involves four months of foundation level training where participants learn about the airline industry, followed by on-the-job training across key Etihad Airways business areas, before specialising in a particular airline role. Some of the posts taken by the nine graduates include those in the Sales department specialising in Eastbound Sales, Services at Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport, Aircraft Engineer in Flight Operations and others.
