Hong-Kong-AirlinesThe 4th “Triumph Sky High” Junior Programme hosted by Hong Kong Airlines closed with a big bang today. Accompanied by celebrity actress Christine Ng Wing Mei and TV host Patrick Dunn Chi Fung, the event ambassadors, a group of primary students from Shatin Junior School visited airport facilities and boarded a civil aircraft to have direct interaction with the flight crew members who shared with students aviation knowledge and flight experiences.


Ever since this Programme was launched earlier this year, Hong Kong Airlines has in aggregate brought this unique flight visit experience to over 120 local students from different schools and backgrounds.


The purpose of the Programme is to equip our next generation with general aviation knowledge and to cultivate their interest in the aviation field.

Benefiting from Hong Kong’s position as the transportation hub of Asia, the aviation industry has played a pivotal role in the economies of Hong Kong. A strong pool of talents is one of the keys to success in this industry.


Hong Kong Airlines’ Vice President Mr. Sun Jianfeng, said: “Delivering knowledge of the aviation industry to the younger generation as early as in primary schools will help nurture new talents.


Rooted and headquartered in this city, Hong Kong Airlines is committed to promoting the development of Hong Kong’s aviation industry.


Through a series of activities under this Programme, students will be able to gain a better understanding of and acquire relevant knowledge about aviation, widening their horizons and thus cultivating their interests in this field.”

The “Triumph Sky High” Junior Programme has received overwhelming response from schools ever since its launch.


Over a hundred schools have applied for this programme. Students visited Hong Kong Airlines’ catering service centre to learn about how meals were provided to flight passengers.


They then visited the check-in counters at the airport to observe the nuances of ground service operations. Students then boarded a Hong Kong Airlines aircraft and entered the cockpit to hear from pilots and crew members their first-hand flight experiences.
Students were impressed with the exciting visits which had deeply increased their interests in the aviation industry.


Some expressed right after the event their ambitions to become pilots. Hearing from students these encouraging feedbacks, Hong Kong Airlines plans to increase the frequency of this “Triumph Sky High” Junior Programme next year to offer more students the opportunity to benefit from such visits.
