What’s different about our Regional Airlines?

There are many advantages to becoming a Regional Flight Attendant. Working locally means you’re never far from home and there’s no jet lag to worry about. You will be sole charge or a team of two running the service in the cabin, from safety briefings over the PA to in-flight service and liaising with Pilots and Ground Staff so it’s a great environment to step up and really own your role. The environment on our domestic carriers is intimate and informal, allowing you to chat with our guests and point out areas of interest during your flight.

  • Minimum Restricted or Full New Zealand Driver Licence with reliable transport

  • Compliance with our Uniform Standards
