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 approximately 3,800 Cabin Crew and Pilots, taking our customers on holiday to more than 88 destinations on our 62 aircraft 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.

Please Note: It’s important you are confident you can get from your home address to the crew room in 90 minutes or less. In practice, depending on the airport base, this may mean you need to live closer than 90 minutes to include both local and peak traffic conditions, parking and any travel time from staff car parks to the crew room.

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.
