Air Niugini continues to recognize and award staff members who contribute best ideas towards the Smart Ideas campaign.
The campaign is part of the four pillars under the airline’s Higher Altitudes Program which aims to reduce costs, generate more revenue, build a stronger and happier workforce and excel in customer offerings.
Four staff from various departments within the airline were awarded on Friday, 17th July 2020 for contributing their best ideas during January and May this year. A few others were also acknowledged for their efforts.
The winning ideas centered around tracking and monitoring of aircraft blankets, availability of External Power Units to Boeing aircraft when it arrives at the terminal which adds to fuel saver, and saver fare classes for domestic network among others.
Air Niugini’s HA2020 Program Coordinator Ms. Tasha Tukana said, “We look forward to more entries this year and we encourage all staff members to continue contributing ideas to the program. You’re the heart of the organisation, thank you for going out of your way to take the time and effort to come up with these smart ideas.”
The winners received shopping vouchers, amenity set as well as gift chocolates and coffee, wine glasses, coffee mug and various merchandise.
Staff submit their ideas each month to a committee who then selects and awards those who submit the best ideas.
The Smart Ideas campaign also ensures staff inclusiveness and helps them to think positively by contributing ideas.
