The firm has released a statement on the subject, hoping to inspire other firms to follow their example, subsequently enhancing life experiences and skill sets of young professionals across the nation.
It has been reported that over four billion individuals travelled via air in 2017 (IATA, 2018), a statistic that is only set to increase over the coming years. Bamboosh is eager to detail ways in which this can accelerate the success of individuals.
