ZURICH, SWITZERLAND — The end of the season in the winter sports resorts is imminent. With the new "Ski & Fly" program, the Swiss regional airline Helvetic Airways offers ski instructors an attractive working model as flight attendants in the summer season.

After successful training, you will be heading from Zurich to some of the most beautiful holiday destinations around the Mediterranean over the summer until the end of October 2022. For the ski instructors in the mountain areas, the season is slowly coming to an end. For all those who are looking for a change and an exciting job during the summer months, Helvetic Airways has created a new and innovative working model: "Ski & Fly".
The Swiss regional airline based at Zurich Airport gives seasonal employees the opportunity to work full-time as flight attendants during the summer months. The training program includes all introductory courses and training in Zurich-Kloten as well as the introductory flights in the cabin.

"With our flexible working hours, we offer ski instructors and all other seasonal employees an exciting opportunity to bridge the summer months with a varied and responsible job and to be back on the ski slopes at the start of the 2022/23 winter season,"

says Franz Lindauer, the Head of Cabin Crew responsible for the introduction of the new program.

The "Ski & Fly" program is initially designed for two summer seasons, but can be extended at any time if required. The entry dates and the start of the training courses are May 1st and mid-May and June 1st and mid-June 2022.

Helvetic Airways has already made a name for itself in the past with innovative and flexible working models. For example, the company introduced the "Fly & Study" program for students a few years ago and also offers attractive part-time models for career changers and returnees.

It is therefore not surprising that the proportion of part-time employees is very high for an airline, at 40 percent in the cabin and 20 percent in the cockpit.
