Kailash Lingam


I clean all types of aircrafts to cleaning specifications and work with daily time schedules.

Where did your journey start?

I started my career as a casual worker in the Baggage department for one year.

Where’s your journey taken you so far within Air New Zealand?

After I worked in Baggage for a year, I then progressed to a part-time Cleaner also for one year. After that I became a full-time Aircraft Cleaning Foreman supervising all of the staff and assisting with job allocation and making sure they work to “on time performance” guidelines.

Where do you hope your journey will take you?

Ideally I would like to become a Team Manager of Cleaning and also develop myself as a Foreman/Cleaner.

What Air NZ value do you feel you best represent and why?

CAN DO – We have a variety of challenges in our day-to-day role, we go the extra mile to make all our aircrafts presentable to our customers. I have pride in what I do and I feel a sense of success after every aircraft is cleaned.

What’s the best story you’ve been able to tell after a day at work?

My sense of satisfaction after a long hard day’s work. You see everyone smiling and laughing as we all walk out together as a team, happy people is what it's all is about!
