Hey everyone. My name is Pedro Lopes. I’m 26 years old and have been flying for SWISS as a cabin crew member for the past year-and-a-half. I was born in Lissabon, grew up in the Bernese Oberland and call the sky my home. That pretty much summarizes my life so far.
My fascination for aviation developed when I was still a little kid, spending a lot of time on the Observation Deck at Zurich Airport. My eyes always lit up when the crew arrived in front of the plane in their special crew bus and joyfully entered the aircraft. What was once a dream has now become a reality. After completing high school in Interlaken, I studied Languages & Ethnology in Berne and Zurich. But I always knew that “the sky is the limit”, and in September 2014, I finally jumped at the opportunity to join SWISS as a cabin crew member.
For the past year-and-a-half, I was able to experience and discover a lot of things, which is why I now want to share my everyday experiences with you in July. I will focus on two things: First of all, I want to give you an exclusive backstage view of our new flagship, the Boeing 777-300ER. I’ll show you what goes on behind the scenes of our “Triple Seven”, what happens during flight, and will give you a glimpse at its new features. Secondly, I want to show you what I do as a cabin crew instructor. You’ll see what the procedure is like on an introduction flight and how the cabin crew and trainees collaborate on board.
I’m looking forward to it and wish all of you an eventful and hot summer!
