Riga Airport Visited by 26 Pupils

On 10 February, the annual Shadow Day took place in Latvia and pupils visited many workplaces to take a closer look at their potential future professions. The specialists of different departments of Riga International Airport, too, welcomed twenty-six youngsters who wished to “shadow” them.

The greatest interest was shown about the work on the apron – handling of aircraft and baggage. Many youngsters wished to know more about the ticket service, the coordinator’s and dispatcher’s duties.

The Shadow Day began with registration of the pupils and a presentation about the airport. After the presentation, they met the representatives of their chosen professions: apron inspectors, the bird and wildlife control specialist, dispatchers, shift managers, firefighters, ticket service agents, passenger service agents, non-scheduled flight coordinators, the environmental noise specialist, VIP service agents, information service agents, senior shift leaders as well as learned more about the work of the Aviation Services and Business development Department director.

Upon learning about the various professions, the “shadows” went on a guided tour of the airport and visited the Aviation Museum.
