Opportunities for work in this industry, in the UK and particularly in London, have increased dramatically over the last few years with huge numbers of tourists visiting all year round.

Many of our alumni now work for Jet2 at London Stansted Airport and for British Airways at Gatwick Airport and Heathrow Airport. WestKing is also a member of ABTA (Association of British Travel agents), which enhances the expertise we pass onto our students.
