The first locally recruited and trained cabin crew members for Virgin Australia’s Adelaide base graduated on January 20.

The 24 graduated have been training and testing for the past seven weeks, and will be part of the 80 new jobs the airline says it has brought to Adelaide since opening its base there.

“We are especially excited about these graduates, as they are the first cabin crew to be recruited and trained in Adelaide, which benefits our business and the greater Adelaide community,” Virgin Australia chief customer officer Mark Hassell said in a statement. “These new team members have been selected for their motivation and commitment to excel and we expect them to put our customers at the heart of everything they do.”

The new cabin crew members will be operating on Boeing 737 and Embraer 190 equipment to all mainland state capitals, the Gold Coast, and up to Bali.
