The bustling market for air hostess training institutes

New Delhi: Flying Cats, the latest inflight service school, tries to catch the tailwind of Frankfinn.
Flying Cats is the latest entrant to the bustling market for air hostess training institutes. With a start-up investment of some Rs 50-70 lakh on 20 centres across India, the school claims to equip youngsters with all that they need to make careers in aviation hospitality and tourism.
Most of the career-glamorisation work has already done by the earlier entrant, Frankfinn Institute of Air Hostess Training.
Frankfinn already has 65 centres across India, and “targets 85-90, with centres in UAE, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh by year end,” says Samir Valia, vice-president, Frankfinn.
Then there’s Air Hostess Training Academy (AHA), with 26 centres across India, that claims that its course is validated by Cambridge, UK, and has “a tie-up with most airlines for placements” according to Sapna Gupta, chief consultant, AHA.
