Trans States employees are a talented and accomplished bunch, and Hernane Diniz, the new Inflight Supervisor at our Chicago crew base, is no exception. An industry veteran with a diverse array of aviation experience, Hernane moved from Brazil to the United States when he was 18 to pursue his dream of becoming a pilot. He earned his Private Pilot License from American Flyers Flight School, and went on to study Aviation Management and Safety at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. After finishing school, he became an International Customer Service Agent for United Airlines in Chicago, gaining valuable experience in airline operations.
In 2014, Hernane decided to further diversify his aviation resume by becoming a Flight Attendant. He interviewed with several airlines, but chose to join Trans States, a decision that he is quite proud of. Hernane has fond memories of the time he spent as a Chicago-based Flight Attendant, and says that it was a year full of fun days on airport reserve, trips to new places and great laughs with his crews.
After a year as a Flight Attendant, Hernane was selected as the Inflight Supervisor for the Chciago crew base. In his new role, Hernane supervises the Flight Attendants based out of the Chicago base and is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Chicago Inflight department, as well as for monitoring Inflight operational performance. Of his new position, Hernane says, “I feel humbled and thankful for the opportunity Trans States Airlines has given me. I am looking forward to providing guidance and support to my co-workers, and as a team, delivering excellent service to our customers, while keeping safety as our number one priority.”
At Trans States, we want to give our employees as many opportunities as possible to grow their careers, and we promote from within whenever we can. Hernane’s promotion from Flight Attendant to Supervisor is a perfect example of our commitment to our employees’ professional advancement. We want to make sure that Trans States a great place for them to build careers and call home!
