Dear travel enthusiasts, aviation experts and globetrotters
I’m excited to take you along on my journeys that will lead me around the world for the next month. In May, I’ll be accompanying you and will share my experiences and impressions on Instagram @flyswiss with you.
My name is Lea, and I graduated from high school in St. Gallen last summer. I’m 18 years old, and am probably among the youngest of around 4000 flight attendants working for SWISS. I started my training in September of last year. Since January, I’ve been able to accompany a number of short and long-haul flights, and have already discovered eight of our 26 long-haul destinations. I’m proud to be surrounded by so many motivated colleagues who support and challenge me every day anew. But enough about me. As a “newbie” in the cabin, I’ll be telling you more about the training we go through, what it takes to be a cabin crew member, as well as the greatest challenges we face. And of course, I’ll be giving you a glimpse of how exciting and varied a typical day above the clouds can be.
I’m looking forward to start this journey with you.
