Avion Express, a subsidiary of Avia Solutions Group, a leading provider of aircraft, crew, maintenance, insurance (ACMI) and charter services, is expanding and invites passionate and bright individuals to become their flight crew members. All those interested in career opportunities in the skies are invited to participate in an open doors event, which will take place in Latvia, Ireland, Czech Republic, Romania.
Looking for additions to crews
According to Laura Macutkevic, Vice President for People and Culture at Avion Express, the charter airline is actively growing and is already looking for new members to join its team. “We are looking for responsible, curious people who want to be part of a dynamic industry. This is a great opportunity for those who are still dreaming of an aviation career.”
Strict appearance requirements – myth
Laura believes that anyone with enough enthusiasm can become a member of a flight crew. “The most important thing is the desire to learn, communication, and excellent social skills. The very specifics of the job are quickly learned.”
Jovita Jasinskaite, a crew member at Avion Express, agrees, adding that the widespread ideas about strict appearance requirements of flight attendants are just myths. “Most airlines want real people, not supermodels. Of course, there are requirements for hair length and colour, visible tattoos, earrings, and so on. Once in employment, you need to follow an appearance guide, but it doesn’t require much effort. For example, the permitted colours for nail polish are natural shades, red and French manicures. ”
An opportunity to see aviation from up-close
Laura Macutkevic says that both aviation itself and the career opportunities it offers are truly attractive, so getting to know the industry and the people who already work in it is worth it for anyone who dreams of a career above the clouds. “To encourage potential colleagues to consider the position of an aircraft crew member, we are holding open days during which Avion Express flight crew members will share their experiences, work stories and answer questions.”
Open Days will be held on:
- 20 June – Riga, Latvia.
- 21 June – Dublin, Ireland.
- 22 June – Prague, Czech Republic.
- 23 June – Bucharest, Romania.
