Join our Pit Crew team

 

Don’t mind a bit of hard work and manual labour? Happy to work outside - in rain, hail, or shine? Consider yourself to be strong, adaptable, and reliable? Join our Pit Crew team. If you love being outdoors, doing physical work and being part of a team that really looks out for one another, you’ll feel right at home here.

As one of our Pit Crew, you’ll play an important part in ensuring our planes are turned around on time. From making sure our guests’ baggage gets where it needs to be, to moving and loading freight, pushing stairs, helping to open aircraft doors and handling cargo, oversized items and pets – no two days are the same – and you’ll even get to drive those little baggage tugs.

You’ll work a rotating roster than can include weekends and shift work, but the varied hours mean you’re able to enjoy activities in your personal time when most other people are at work. You’ll see stunning sunrises and sunsets and experience a side of the aviation industry that is available to only a select few.
