Silverjet launches online training academy
3 September 2009
Silverjet, the British airline offering a private jet experience at a fraction of the price, has launched the Silverjet Academy - a new online training programme for travel agents.
To celebrate the launch the airline will enter all agents who complete the programme with a 100 per cent pass rate into a prize draw for a pair of Silverjet tickets to New York or Dubai.
The new site at Silverjetacademy.com features four modules with multiple choice questions covering the background of Silverjet, the service on the ground and in the air, airfares and Silverjet’s exclusive facilities at London Luton and New York Newark airports. Questions on the airline’s newest route to Dubai will be added in phase two of the training programme.
Once registered, users can work through the modules at their own pace, with the option to save the information and return again at a later date. Upon scoring a 100 per cent pass rate, users will be rewarded with a certificate and will be eligible to apply for places on Silverjet’s prestigious familiarisation trips plus be automatically entered into a prize draw for two Silverjet tickets.
In addition to the training sections, the Silverjet Academy also features an online forum, where users can discuss any issues, problems or queries with the Silverjet sales team staff and other users.
Katherine Gershon, Silverjet Sales & Marketing Director, commented: "We recognise that as a relatively new airline it is very important for us to educate and support the travel trade as they talk to their customers about our service.
“The Silverjet Academy has been developed with assistance from members of the travel trade as well as our expert sales team. We have designed the online training programme to enable travel agents to develop a thorough understanding of the Silverjet experience and discover exactly how we deliver our private jet style experience.”
To be eligible for entry into the prize draw, participants must complete the course by 31st December 2007 with 100% pass mark.
The winner will be notified by 7th January 2008.
