The recognition was awarded to Hong Kong Airlines' "Engineering License Trainee Programme", which aims to nurture young talents to become professional aircraft engineers. Recognised as an industry-first, this fast-track programme consists of A and B modules: Aircraft technical knowledge and Business management to develop high calibre professionals.

Mr Vitoo Zhang, Vice President of Hong Kong Airlines, said: "Hong Kong Airlines is dedicated to providing accelerated career path and diverse development opportunities for the young generation, thus supporting the manpower demand and future growth of the aviation industry in Hong Kong."

"We encourage innovation and vigor in our company culture, and these awards recognise the hard work and commitment that we have placed in producing the very best within the industry. I feel very proud to be working alongside the best and the brightest."

This latest success follows a series of new developments by Hong Kong Airlines, which have included the launch of its service to Vancouver on 30 June; the opening of its new VIP lounge, Club Autus; and the delivery of its first-ever Airbus A350 aircraft. 2017 is shaping up to be an even more exciting year, as the airline looks to expand its presence in North America later this year, with the launch of its daily Hong Kong-Los Angeles service.
