I have been an avid reader of the forums for a while and decided to become a first class member after seeing how helpful and informative the site is.
Please excuse my first post being a request for information..
As a recent MBA graduate (Business Management) with a dissertation on customer services in national carriers behind me I've recently taken on my first full time role as a Key Accounts Executive at a well known travel agency. While I am happy with the role, my dream of working in the aviation industry in a business-related capacity is ever present.
My question to all of you working in the airline/airport business is, what sort of positions are available to someone with my background? I want to apply to the MAG Group and TUI graduate schemes when they reopen, but failing that what is the best route into the industry - internships, work experience, consulting firms?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I've drawn up a list of 'dream companies' I'd like to work for. These include Virgin, Airbus, TUI and MAG Group.
I have searched for previous similar posts on the forum, but most are dated 6-10 years ago!
I am a British National, with Cypriot background.
Thanks in advance!
