We are aware of how important it is for young people at the beginning of their careers when a major company offers them an opportunity for professional development, acquiring practical knowledge and developing the necessary skills. It is our great pleasure that we can enable a number of candidates to gain their first work experience with us, and we are convinced that working at the national airline will motivate them to make further achievements.
