WHAT DO VIPS DO?
Traveling can be very stressful, so VIPs help alleviate some of that anxiety through assistance such as:
Providing directions to various airport and community facilities
Assisting passengers with finding appropriate transportation
Providing suggestions to sightseeing attractions in the Los Angeles area
Facilitating communications between distressed passengers and airlines
Training for VIPs includes customer service techniques, latest procedures in airport security and airline check-in procedures, airport services and amenities, travel and hospitality resources, assistance during emergencies and incidents, and Internet and computer training. Volunteers will also attend a Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) employee orientation and badge training. Training for new volunteers is on-going and you will be notified upon submission of application.
A Resource Notebook, laptop computer, cell phone, and land line phones are available as resources.
