7. Start-up training
We have several start-up options. There are currently trainings programmed between October 2023 and December 2023, so even if you have to give notice at your current job, feel free to apply. You will be given the exact possible dates at the end of your application process.
For students, we will have a training starting on February 3rd and one on March 2nd .
You will first have an intensive six-week theoretical course on, among other things, on-board safety, service, evacuation exercises… and during the following days, your training flights will be scheduled. So, in total, expect a training period of about 8 weeks.
For students, it will be mostly trainings during the weekends and school holidays.
Yes, you will receive a salary from the start of your training, this is similar to your basic gross salary. From the moment you start flying, several supplements are added.
For job students this is different. They receive a salary from the moment they start flying.
Yes, but we do ask that you are motivated and committed to improve the other national language. We do expect you to have a basic knowledge of the country’s other language so you can have a basic conversation, answer a simple question or assess and explain any risk on board.
English is the working language in aviation and all classes and exams will also be taught and conducted in English. Your level of English (written and spoken) will therefore be assessed during your online tests.
We expect all our Cabin Crew Members to be available and deployable from all airport bases in Belgium. This is not to say that you should depart from a different airport every day, but rather that you should be able to move around smoothly and without problems. Our TUI flights often leave at very early hours or sometimes arrive late. Often at hours when there is none or very limited public transport. That means that you will have to drive yourself to the airport.
Even if you are scheduled for a standby duty, we expect you to be at the indicated airport, ready to depart, within 45 minutes.
Those with provisional licences have a fair number of restrictions for driving between certain hours, especially on weekends or public holidays. These are precisely our peak times when we expect a lot of flexibility from Cabin Crew Members.
That is why a permanent licence is required from the moment you start flying. We accept candidates who currently still have a provisional driving licence as long as they are already in the process of obtaining a permanent licence. You still must be able to drive alone.
If you do not yet have a EU passport, but you can easily apply for on, then you definitely qualify. The application for a EU passport takes about two weeks for Belgian citizens. Ask for more information from your municipality.
If you do already hold an EU passport, please check that it is still valid. Your passport must be valid at all times for at least another six months.
Most people go on holiday during the summer period, which is why we initially offer a seasonal contract. Depending on your regular evaluations, we are happy to offer one or more extensions, and this may also result in a permanent contract. On the other hand, there are a lot of opportunities for working in other parts of TUI. Whether at headquarters, abroad or in our various Travel Shops.
Students will fly during the summer period (July-August and/or September).
The salary of a CCM contains several elements. There is the gross basic pay you receive (calculated according to your individual situation), in addition there are various supplements you receive while working. So, you get a net contribution per flight day, even if you have to stay abroad, for example, you get a net allowance for this.
