In a nutshell
Were you born to fly?
Do you dream of waking up in the Caribbean, exploring the sights of South Africa, or sampling sizzling street food in India? When you join us as a member of our world-class Cabin Crew, you can do all the above, and more.
We’re looking for warm, professional, engaging individuals to be the beating heart of our airline. We believe every customer’s inflight experience should be as memorable as the adventure that awaits them at their destination, and our crew plays a huge part in that.
Our outstanding service is what sets us apart, and it’s our personality, as well as our attention to detail and rigorous training, that ensures our customers and crew fly safe and well with us, every time.
We welcomed many new crew members onboard last year and have loved seeing their careers take off. So, while this contract is for six months to begin with, it really is just the start of your journey, and we’ll always try to retain our crew permanently if we can.

- Be responsible for the safety, security, and operational excellence onboard.
- Be working in a team alongside our experienced Cabin Crew bringing your unique personality and flair to everything you do. You’ll share our passion for delivering outstanding customer service and making lasting memories.
