Creating opportunities for dynamic young individuals to achieve their potential, SriLankan Airlines recruited 20 new Management Trainees, following a one-year comprehensive training programme. The Management Trainee Programme was implemented with the intention of absorbing new blood into the organisation. It is vital that key positions are filled by newcomers who will not only benefit the organisation by preventing inbreeding of ideas but will also grow with the organisation to take up future managerial positions. SriLankan Airlines has taken in six Management Trainee batches in the past and the current intake was inducted in June 2016.
