Over the last 21 years easyJet has built Europe’s leading short-haul airline, flying to and from 132 airports, in 31 countries.
easyJet has a large number of bases. Depending on your location and language skills, you may be based in London, Berlin, Rome or many other cities across Europe. However, if for example you wish to be based in Berlin you need to speak English and German fluently.
Cabin Crew Requirements:
- Be aged 18 or over
- Be between 5’3” (160cm) and 6’3” (190cm) without shoes
- Be able to live and work in the EU without restriction – applications for Geneva and Basel require the right to work in Switzerland only
- Hold a European passport that allows you to travel freely within the EEA and to all of our destinations
- You must pass a medical assessment and eye test
- Be able to swim 25m unaided and tread water for at least a minute
- Be fluent in English and the native language of the country you wish to be based in (spoken and written)
- Reside within 90 minutes of your chosen base and be prepared to make this journey every day, at any time of the day

The starting salary is around £10,000 and around £60 per day sector pay (all before tax).
You will also receive a 2.5% commission from sales on board your flight. In total, you will receive around £1100-£1200 during the winter months and £1400-£1600 in the summer months (all after tax). The difference is because you will be flying more during the summer months.
After a minimum of 1 year flying promotion as a cabin crew manager is possible, which will mean a salary increase.
Once you have completed your initial training course with Easy Jet you will probably receive a fixed term contract, which is temporary employment. However, sometimes depending on crew requirements they may offer permanent contracts, full time.
Due to easyJet only doing short haul flights you (almost) always return back to your base.
Your roster is very flexible. This means, that you could be flying for 2 days, with one day off. Or you could also be flying for 6 days, with 3 days off afterwards. Per day, you will operate on 2 or 4 flights.
