13 April 2011
While it already has an operation in Dubai, it is now eyeing other parts of the Middle-East, where its Chairman, K S Kohli, scents an immense potential for its services. “We are the number one airhostess training institute. Now we want to expand our footprint globally,” Kohli said. With this view, it has set up Frankfinn Institute of Air Hostess Training FZ LLC and launched its operations in Dubai. “Soon we propose to enter other Middle-East markets,” he said. Frankfinn also has a presence in Mauritius and Hong Kong. Frankfinn Institute of Air Hostess Training is a division of Frankfinn Aviation Services. Buoyant about the future of the aviation industry as also of the hospitality and travel sectors, Kohli said that as these sectors grow exponentially in the coming years, there would be a tremendous need for trained personnel and hence the growth of his Institute and others such as his, is a given.
“As the aviation sector expands, there will be new aircraft, new airports and increased number of flights. Trained manpower will be required to cater to a rapidly-growing number of customers. It is here that institutes such as Frankfinn will have to play an important role,” Kohli said. Frankfinn’s courses have a global acceptance, he said. “All courses at Frankfinn in aviation, hospitality and travel management are accredited by ICM, UK, an institute of repute that is recognized in over 130 countries worldwide.
The rapid growth of all these industries can be gauged from the fact that in the last one year over 5000 Frankfinn students have been placed with 1900 in just 100 days in the aviation, hospitality and travel industry. The top
salary offered was Rs. 1.26 lacs per month. Over 700 campus/ exclusive interviews were conducted in the last one year.
Testimony to this is the fact that Frankfinn’s students have got placed not only in Indian air-carriers but also in leading international ones such as Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Oman Air and Malaysia Air.
In the hospitality sector as well, leading chains such as the Leela, Hyatt, Marriott, Taj and ITC, among others, have hired Frankfinn’s graduates, he said.An important facet of the Institute he highlighted is the fact that it has a dedicated placement assistance cell which assists students in their placement even after completion of their course.
Frankfinn also has a tie-up with Jet Airways for in-flight familiarization and after completion of the same, the students get a co-branded certificate,” he said. Frankfinn also offers soft-skills training to corporates in areas such as leadership skills, conflict management, team-building, sales skills and stress and time management, among others. It also lays emphasis on personal grooming, etiquette and mannerisms. Christened Frankfinn Corpexcel, it offers training solutions for all levels—right from the entry-level employees to the CEO.
Frankfinn also has a company—Frankfinn Management Consultants—which specializes in providing HR solutions to many airlines and hotels. This company is the recruitment partner for all positions in India for the entire Emirates Group including Emirates Airlines. In the past, it has provided recruitment consultancy to Malaysia Airlines, Oman Air, Air Arabia, Indigo and Air Deccan (now Kingfisher Red). The group has also ventured into the security services business with K5 Security, Kohli said.
