Kylies Fung has been with McCarran International Airport for four years, one of which was as an intern as she attended school at UNLV. Like many, she never thought about a career in airports nor did she ever think that her schooling in Hospitality Management would be applicable to this environment. But years later, she sees the connection between her learnings and the evolution of the industry. Airport hospitality is a common refrain that you will hear throughout this episode because it is the mindset that is prevalent amongst the team at McCarran International Airport.
Ones To Watch is a new, recurring series produced by Airport Experience News. Here we will feature emerging, up-and-coming members of commercial management teams from across North America.
This episode is sponsored by Crews. Innovating the traveler experience since 1972.
