Training course & preparation in nutshell

  1. Length of the training course

    Selected candidates must undergo a 6-9 week training course before employment. The duration varies based on previous flight experience and recency of Cabin Crew Member work. If no prior CCM experience, the course lasts 9 weeks. Training is unpaid and begins gradually from November. Full on-site attendance is required.

  2. Earlier cabin crew experience

    For those who have previously worked in cabin crew, we check the last flight experience and also collect block hours on a monthly basis before the start of the course.

  3. Preparation

    About two months before the course starts, you will receive preparation instructions. This includes a pre-employment security clearance, a foreign criminal history declaration if you have lived abroad for over six months in the last five years, a medical examination with a drug test, and a uniform fitting. An EU-required five-year background check will verify your employment & education records and any gaps in your history.

  4. Conditional participation in the course

    Participation in the course requires a clean criminal record (security clearance), passing the pre-employment health check and taking care of other assigned tasks.

Homebase and workday

The cabin crew's home base is Helsinki Airport, where all flights operate from. The job includes standby shifts, requiring crew members to be available on short notice. If you're relocating, you'll need to live in the Helsinki Metropolitan area to fulfill your duties. Workdays vary depending on the assigned flights. Cabin crew members work on both domestic and international flights, with shifts ranging from multiple flights to a single destination like Oulu to long-haul flights to Asia.

Salary and contract

After training, selected employees receive a full-time permanent or fixed term contract of approximately 110 working hours per month. Cabin crew member’s salary varies a lot depending on what kind of flights you fly and when. The basic salary of full-time employment and the hourly salary of part-time employment depend on how much experience you have as a cabin crew member. If you have previous cabin crew experience, it will be taken into account according to CLA (Collective Labor Agreement). The salary consists of basic salary, salary additionals (approx. 30-40% of the basic salary) and daily allowances. Salary additionals include e.g. Sunday allowance or night duty allowance. The monthly basic salary ranges currently from about 1700€ gross pay to around 2800€ gross pay for crew members with long experience. The salary grade has an effect on salary additionals as well. Salary is based on the agreement between the Service Sector Employers PALTA and Transport Workers’ Union AKT.
