DIATA, the training arm of DAA International, has now started to welcome delegates from Oman Airports Management Company as part of its major contract to train staff from the company.
The first group of 10 Omanis arrived in August and in total more than 100 OAMC employees will come to Dublin and Cork Airports over the next 18 months to complete training with DIATA.
The training process consists of a blended approach of 20% classroom learning and 80% practical training as OAMC staff are embedded within the DAA operation working with their counterparts here.
Extending a Céad Míle Fáilte to the first Oman group, DAA Chief Executive Kevin Toland said he looked forward to growing the existing relationship with OAMC, which had its roots in the ARI relationship with Muscat Duty Free. Dublin Airport has significant experience in all areas of airport development, which he hoped would lead to a productive and profitable longer term relationship for both companies, he added.
