Training Venezuela Airport Personnel on The Way to Happiness

Volunteers from the Church of Scientology train firefighters at Simón Bolívar International Airport in Caracas on The Way to Happiness

Volunteers from the Church of Scientology conducted a seminar in June for 50 airport firefighters (bomberos aeronauticos) working at Simón Bolívar International Airport in Caracas, Venezuela, part of an overall initiative to train personnel and security staff of the airport on The Way to Happiness, a nonreligious commonsense moral code written by author, humanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard.

Of the 12 international airports in the country, Simón Bolívar is the primary passenger gateway. The Way to Happiness provides airport personnel a foundation in basic moral principles to facilitate the friendly, efficient execution of their duties.

The seminar consisted of:

  • Watching the public service announcements that introduce each of the precepts

  • Reading The Way to Happiness booklet

  • Gaining an even better understanding of the text through the feature-length The Way to Happiness book-on-film.

With airport personnel learning such precepts as “Try to treat others as you would like them to treat you,” and seeing tangible examples in the book-on-film, international travelers to Venezuela can look forward to an even more welcoming atmosphere as they enter the country.

The Church of Scientology and its members are proud to share the tools for happier living contained in The Way to Happiness with all who work to build a better world. For more information, visit the Scientology website at
