SINGAPORE: Republic Polytechnic (RP) and Jetstar Asia are collaborating to nurture potential aviation professionals.

RP and the carrier have signed a three-year agreement that will offer regular internship opportunities for RP students.

Students pursuing a Diploma in Civil Aviation will get to fly as full-fledged members of the Jetstar cabin crew to various destinations for 20 weeks of their internship period.

Jetstar Asia will also offer attachments in areas like airline management, engineering and flight operations.

RP students who complete the internship will also be considered for full-time employment by Jetstar Asia.

RP students will also undertake final-year projects defined by Jetstar Asia, with airline staff acting as co-supervisors to provide guidance.

The projects will focus on issues related to flight operations, crew resource management and engineering cost decisions.

Jetstar Asia said it will review these projects for real-world adoption.   - CNA/xq
