Join our Cabin Crew team

Winner: Best Cabin Crew

We've won the Airline Excellence Award for Best Cabin Crew six years in a row!


We’re looking for good humans. The best kind. Those with hospitality in their heart, and a spring in their step. The cool, calm, collected, happy to help, nothing’s too much trouble (but don’t test me), people loving, safety conscious, clear headed, charming, and down to earth kind to join our team of cabin crew.

You’ll be welcoming people onboard our aircraft (and seeing them off at the other end), giving clear, comprehensive safety briefings (and making sure everyone adheres to them). Naturally, you’ll be giving brilliant service to all our guests, helping those with special needs and requirements and making flying super fun for unaccompanied minors.

As part of our airline’s Cabin Crew, you’ll be working as part of a team, meeting new people and seeing new places. Working in the aviation industry as a flight attendant means being able to handle things that are outside of your control (environmental factors, delays, emergencies etc). Your ability to remain calm and confident under pressure will go a long way towards making guests feel like they’re in good hands.
