Vidu shares her unique experience working with QAL below:

“I initially joined QAL as an intern and I was impressed by the friendly and supportive work culture that was nurtured at the organisation. Shortly after my internship, I was offered the opportunity to join the team at MIAPL and needless to say I was beyond thrilled. As a fresh-out-of-university graduate, I loved how helpful and accommodating my work colleagues were – I can always rely on my leaders and team for guidance. I enjoy working with a team of seasoned aviation professionals who are passionate about what they do, and it doesn’t fail to inspire me.

 I’ve been with QAL for almost a year now and I learn something new every day. In my role, not only do I overlook the administration duties at the airport, but I also get the opportunity to work on various tasks and projects that help broaden my knowledge and understanding of the operational aspects of running an aerodrome. QAL also provides various avenues to support my professional development.”
