Sharaf Aviation Services Academy LLC, a division of Sharaf Travel, is soon to be further elevated by IATA. In a one-on-one interview with Travelweb, Jayaram V Iyer, the Managing Director of Sharaf Travel, UAE revealed that Sharaf’s Aviation Academy established in 2012 would be the first of its kind to clinch the recognition as IATA’s Authorised Training School (ATS) in the region. Sharaf, which attained the leading position in UAE travel trade ever since they entered the market 25 years ago, is in a sole resolve to impart the knowledge gathered over the years back to the travel fraternity. Jayaram says it is what they are doing with their newly established academy.
“We have other authorised training centres (ATC) in the region, but ours will be the first ATS in its kind. We work very closely with Dubai and Sharjah airports for their training needs. It is not easy or viable for every travel agent to have their own training department for their staff development. We, at Sharaf Aviation Services Academy, are providing training in a practical and effective manner,” said Jayaram.
Sharaf Travel, which represents around 20 leading airlines as the GS’s, including Virgin Atlantic and Delta, in the UAE, is known for their flawless services and hands on approach. According to Jayaram, Sharaf’s success lies on the transparency with which they handle their businesses.
Jayaram, who joined the company as the head honcho in 2006, has brought in many significant changes that require mentioning. His achievements vary from adding more partner airlines, increasing leisure segments and in keeping a consistent growth in the business travel. But the unassuming Jayaram prefers the numbers to talk rather than him blurting it out.
