Ladies and Gentlemen,
Welcome on board our SWISS flight through the month of June! My name is Elena Strub and I am your Instagramer of the Month. I am delighted to accompany you on this flight around the world. However, before we begin to explore the big wide world together, I’d like to tell you a few things about myself so that you know who’s soaring above the clouds with you this month.
I grew up in a small village called Schafisheim in the canton of Aargau. Since I was a little girl, I always wanted to follow in my mother’s footsteps and work as a member of the SWISS cabin crew. After passing my Matura exams, I turned this dream into reality and joined Swiss in 2017. Today, I have the honour of accompanying you on board our Airbus fleet, on both short and long-haul flights.
I have always been fascinated with the idea of exploring different countries and discovering their individual culture, customs, habits and values. I also love working with people from all four corners of the world, which is a matter of course in the airline industry with the continuous changeover of crews. This is the source of unforgettable experiences, memorable conversations – and sometimes even fantastic friendships.
To compensate for working at an altitude of 35,000 feet, I like to spend my free time with my loved ones, as well as in the great outdoors – either hiking in the Pennine Alps or jogging in the forest close to home. Photography is another one of my great passions, both in my personal life as well as in my job, as it allows me to record the best moments in pictures. This month, I’ll have the chance to share this with you all on Instagram, giving you a glimpse inside a day in the life of a flight attendant.
But for now, so that we can take off as soon as possible and enjoy the first month of summer, please fasten your seatbelt, ensure that your seat-back is upright and sit back and enjoy the flight!
