Meet Janet. She’s a top-secret airline that’s hiring

January 12, 2018 Headline News No Comments Email Email

A classified airline that operates commuter flights to highly secretive and closely guarded US government facilities is apparently looking for flight attendants.

USA Today has noted a job posting on the website for AECOM, which operates a small fleet of aircraft out of a “discreet but heavily guarded terminal” at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.

Almost nothing is known about Janet. The airline is so secretive the US government refuses to admit it exists. Its planes use the call sign “Janet,” which USA Today says is believed to stand for “Just Another Non-Existent Terminal.” Janet flights operate with a three-digit flight number and a WWW-prefix. In the official publication of ICAO airline codes, this specific three-letter designator is listed as being blocked.

Here’s Wikipedia on Janet: “Due to the airline’s secretive nature, little is known about its organisation. It is operated for the USAF [United States Air Force] by infrastructure and defence contractor AECOM through AECOM’s acquisition in 2014 of URS Corporation, which acquired EG&G Technical Services in 2002, as derived from URS’s history of providing this service to the Air Force and job openings published by URS.

Look – it exists! A Janet Boeing 737-600

“For example, in 2010, URS announced it would be hiring Boeing 737 flight attendants to be based in Las Vegas, requiring applicants to undergo a Single Scope Background Investigation in order to be able to obtain a Top Secret security clearance.”

It is now looking for more attendants, it seems.

The airline operates a fleet of white Boeing 737-600s, with a prominent red stripe.

Where do they fly to? The flight crews know, obviously, but they aren’t telling. Think military bases and secret locations.

Applicants should be “level-headed and clear thinking while handling unusual incidents and situations (severe weather conditions, including turbulence, delays due to weather or mechanicals, hijackings or bomb threats).”

Applicants should also have “active top secret clearance”.  The posting says that attribute is “highly desired”, a requirement which should thin the ranks of eligible applicants.
