easyJet

 

easyJet is a - so called - low cost carrier. By keeping its operational costs as low as possible, Easyjet is able to sell its tickets for a low price. The flights will take you across Europe and as a cabin crew with Easyjet, your working day will always end at your homebase. The exciting part of working for easyJet is that you can be based in one of Europe´s amazing cities. Therefore, you can move to London, or to Paris if that is your taste. This way, you are able to explore new cultures and optimize your language skills. Important to know is, that if you want to apply for a base outside of the UK, you have to be able to speak the language of that country.

 

 

The most important information follows below:
