Fancy spending the summer as a flight attendant?

July 24, 2019 Headline News No Comments Email Email

Air New Zealand is looking for Australians and New Zealanders as temporary flight attendants to fly on its international widebody fleet over the summer period.

The airline is seeking customer service superstars to join over the busy summer period when record numbers of customers are expected to be travelling with the airline.

Successful applicants will be offered four- to six-month temporary contracts and will undergo a condensed and intensive regulatory training course at the Air New Zealand Academy of Learning in Auckland before taking to the skies from October.

The contract cabin crew will be paid a salary of around NZD 40,000 a year plus away-from-home travel allowances that can boost this to as much as NZD 60,000 a year. That’s about AUD 57,500 and it will be prorated for the length of the fixed-term contracts.

To be considered you must have NZ/Australian citizenship or NZ/Australian permanent residency.

Air New Zealand general manager cabin crew, Leeanne Langridge, says she’s looking for applicants who are resilient, have high learning agility and a natural passion for people.

“Our flight attendants have set the benchmark high. They love putting on the uniform every day and enjoy the challenge of working in a dynamic industry. While being a flight attendant can be incredibly fun, it’s a demanding role that will push you to perform at your best. You need to be able to cope well under pressure and enjoy the fact that no two days are the same.”

“Many people tell me that they’ve thought about being a flight attendant at some stage in their lives, so this is a great chance for those people to give it a go.”

Air New Zealand has been named New Zealand’s Most Attractive Employer in the annual Randstad Employer Brand Research for a record six times and it receives more than 3000 flight attendant applications every year.

Applications for the fixed term roles are open from now to this Sunday, 28 July 2019. Details are on the Air New Zealand site here.
