Frankfinn's International Operations and Eastern Region head Shaibal Ghosh told newspersons here that the institute was planning to venture into new arenas by 2010. He said the institute thought of launching an airline after it visualised difficulties in entering into partnership with any airlines. Mr Ghosh said Frankfinn had already ventured into the music industry three years back and launched many music albums. He said a new company called Frankfinn Entertainment Company Pvt Ltd had been formed and hoped that it would be one of the top five entertainment companies in the industry in next five years.
The company is all set to launch its first feature film very soon.
Mr Ghosh said Frankfinn had already bought 14 acres of land in Goa and would soon open a world class aviation school to train pilots.
Mr Ghosh said Frankfinn, which has 115 airhostess training centres in 95 cities across the country planned to open 70 more centres abroad in next two years.
He said the institute, which has only one centre at Dubai at present planned to open 70 more centres in various parts of the globe particularly in middle east and developing countriesin next couple of years.
Mr Ghosh said recently the institute had a tie-up with the Jet Airways to train its students with the off and onflight procedure.
He said the aviation and tourism industry was bomming and the rising trend would continue for the next two decades.
Frankfinn trains the students not only for the aviation industry but also for the hotel and tourism sectors. Thousands of students, who passed out from the institue have already found jobs in national and international airlines and some top star hotels of the country with an attractive salary, he claimed.
Mr Ghosh claimed that Frankfinn placements were eight times higher than its nearest competitier and produced more airhostesses than all other academies put together, Mr Ghosh claimed.
