Staff Highlight - Peter Ovo

Hailing from the Central Province, Rigo and Abau, Peter started as a concierge with the company two years back, in February 2019.

Peter was a porter who attended to guests with high priority in making sure they were well settled into their rooms after checking in. He is a great team player; hence he is fond of finding himself stepping in to help the guests and his colleagues when assistance was needed.

He is now promoted as the Training Supervisor for the concierge.

He joined Airways Hotel after being jobless for almost two months from a security firm. Whilst jobless he was actively looking out for job ads. That was when he saw the advert on paper for the courtesy driver. “As the saying goes, start from small or where you can… so I gave it a try,” saying it with a subtle look of accomplishment on his face. He applied and got the job the following week.

With a smile to end our conversation, he said “The one thing I love most about working here is, I get to make new friends every day when a guest checks in.” He now is rich with friends not only from Papua New Guinea but with people all over the world. This was not what he had in mind when he started working for Airways Hotel.
