At EATS 2023, we are thrilled to introduce you to a dynamic personality who has been a driving force in the world of cabin crew training. Anna Mellberg, with her extensive experience and passion for innovation, is set to make the upcoming Cabin Crew Conference at EATS a truly valuable and interactive experience.

Anna's Remarkable Journey

Anna embarked on her cabin crew career in 1994, and since then, her journey has been nothing short of extraordinary. Over the years, she has worked with a variety of different airlines, gaining valuable insights and experiences aboard various aircraft types. Her diverse background and wealth of knowledge make her an invaluable asset to the world of cabin crew training.

In 1997, Anna joined Novair, a renowned Swedish charter airline celebrated for its operation of A321Neo aircraft. Her role at Novair is multi-faceted, as she serves as the Chief Cabin Safety and CRM Instructor while also fulfilling duties as a Purser. Anna's commitment to excellence has been instrumental in shaping the training standards for both pilots and cabin crew at Novair.

Innovating Training Standards

One of Anna's standout achievements at Novair is her collaborative work with an exceptional team of instructors. Together, they have pioneered groundbreaking training standards, particularly in the realm of practical training. Their innovative approach to training operations has garnered attention from other airlines, leading to the creation of Novair Education—an initiative that strives to share their knowledge and best practices with the wider aviation community.

Anna's expertise has not gone unnoticed on the global stage. She has frequently graced the podium at prestigious aviation conferences such as WATS (World Aviation Training Summit) and APATS (Asia Pacific Airline Training Symposium). At these events, she has shared insights into the challenges of developing top-tier training programs for both pilots and cabin crew, demonstrating her commitment to advancing aviation safety and professionalism.

Cabin Crew Conference: A Vision Turned Reality

Anna's passion for uniting aviation professionals and fostering innovation in cabin crew training led her to embark on a remarkable journey in 2012. She initiated the Cabin Crew Conference hosted by Halldale — a conference that started as a modest gathering but has since evolved into a fantastic forum for industry professionals. With each passing year, this event attracts an ever-growing number of attendees and evolves to address the industry's emerging challenges and trends.

Notably, Anna has played a pivotal role in moderating the conference, ensuring that it remains an interactive, educational, and dynamic platform for all participants. Her dedication to facilitating meaningful discussions and inspiring new ideas has been a cornerstone of the event's success.

Cabin Crew Heads of Training Meeting: A Collaborative Endeavor

Anna's commitment to collaboration and knowledge sharing extends beyond the Cabin Crew Conference. Last year, she took on the role of hosting the Cabin Crew Heads of Training meeting, where she partners with esteemed colleagues Noel Houlihan from Aer Lingus and Emil Moberg from Braathens Regional Airlines. Together, they continue to drive innovation and excellence in aviation training.

Anna's remarkable career, innovative spirit, and dedication to the aviation industry have made her a prominent figure in the field of cabin crew training. As she takes the stage at the upcoming Cabin Crew Conference at EATS, participants can expect an engaging and insightful experience that promises to broaden their horizons and inspire new ideas.

Join us at EATS, and be part of this dynamic interactive meeting where Anna and other industry leaders will share their knowledge, expertise, and passion for cabin crew training. It's an event you won't want to miss!
