Video: Inside the Flight Attendant Training Program in Azul Airlines
Watch Carioca NoMundo, a popular Youtuber, featuring and trying to also undergo the flight attendant training program inside Azul Airlines:
He first introduced one of the instructors, Douglas Barros who welcomed and showed him the lessons and activities candidates learn throughout the training program. They first started with “safety”, as it is the utmost important thing in aviation. The whole training facility looked like a university with classrooms and students who were flight attendant candidates. To make the lessons more realistic, there are even Embraer cabin mock-ups and other equipment used in the aircraft of Azul Airlines.
“Observe, perceive, attend” or OPA is one of their customer service mantras. If a client is eating something, but the flight attendant seems to observe that he has nothing to drink, they offer him water. Yes, they refer to them as clients, to make a more professional and personalized approach to their customer service.
As reminded by the instructor, even if there is an available safety video on board, it is also necessary that every flight attendant knows how to demonstrate the safety procedures. During the training, they were also taught how to use safety equipment such as oxygen masks and life vests. Moreover, there were also roleplays on how to do first-aid or how to attend to a client who needs immediate medical attention.
