The ideal candidate

Most people who flourish as Flight Attendants are described well by these words: warm, confident, gracious, positive, vibrant.

If you find yourself living this career, you’ll find your days are generally spent providing safe, comfortable, and excellent customer service during every flight.

What management is saying

Here’s how senior management describes Flight Attendants fitting into the bigger Jazz picture.

“People spend a lot of money to travel whether for business or pleasure and our Flight Attendants providing the inflight service are those who deliver the customer service and reinforce the quality of our brand. They provide value to our customers. They have a zest for life, travel and adventure.”

Where in the world? Flight Attendants travel. A lot. Here are some of the places our Flight Attendants vacation.

Happy International Flight Attendant Day! Today we recognize our Flight Attendants and all they do. They are the friendly faces who greet passengers as they board, preparing them for their journey ahead. They are the trained professionals who work diligently to ensure the safety of all on board. They are the caring individuals who provide comfort and reassurance to passengers. They are skilled multitaskers who ensure service runs smoothly while juggling whatever comes their way. They have adapted to new safety protocols and procedures in order to keep our operations running smoothly during this time of uncertainty.

Montreal-based flight attendant Jason Batstone recently had the exciting experience of having his family join him on board! “My mom, aunt, uncle and cousin were all on my flight from Montreal to Halifax!
