Worldwide Flight Services’ Airport College has been recognised as one of the world’s top ten aviation training providers by the International Air Transport Association in its list of 2017 Premier Circle Members.

The Paris-based Airport College is one of only two training providers in Europe to be awarded Premier Circle status by IATA this year out of the network of 450 member institutes in over 90 countries that are authorised IATA training partners, including universities.

WFS first established its Airport College in 2000 to provide training for its own employees to meet mandatory aviation industry requirements. However, it soon identified a high level of demand from other companies requiring professional training services for their cargo and ground handling personnel. Today, the Airport College incorporates a simulated airport terminal boarding area in Orly to train students in passenger services, as well as a facility to teach ULD handling at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport.

In naming its top ten global training partners for 2017, IATA’s Director of Training, Guy Brazeau, said: “We congratulate all the winners, including WFS, for their success and thank them for their contribution in developing more than 100,000 participants and enhancing the skill levels of the global aviation talent pool.”
