Cabin Crew Requirements

The Lifestyle

Our customers want to go on holiday 365 days a year which means we need a flexible team to make this possible. Life in the skies should be considered as a lifestyle choice, this means that you will be working to a roster which will involve early starts, late finishes and weekends.

Flexibility is essential; our Rostering Team are responsible for scheduling 62 UK based aircraft, across more than 88 destinations for approximately 3,800 Cabin Crew and Pilots that are based regionally across the UK & Ireland. You will always receive your roster in advance but it goes without saying, this level of complexity requires you to be adaptable.

Some larger airports have crew car parks that are located some distance from crew rooms and require you to catch an airport shuttle bus, please take this in to consideration when applying for this position.
