Grüezi and welcome on board dear @flyswiss followers my name is Femke and I’m very glad to be your Instagramer of the month February.
I was born and raised in the beautiful canton of Appenzell Ausserrhoden. As you may have noticed my name “Femke” isn’t a typical Swiss name and that’s because I’m half Dutch. I’m 19 years old, turning 20 next month.
“Above the clouds, freedom must be limitless.” A passage from a song by Reinhard Mey, which had already inspired me when I was a little girl. I always found flying and the feeling of freedom above the clouds fascinating. For me, traveling by plane was always a highlight. So you could say that my interest in flying was sparked at a young age.
Traveling and exploring the world has always been a very important part of my life. So after I graduated from high school in the summer of 2019, I knew what I wanted to do: to combine traveling and working. I went to the cabin crew casting and then joined the SWISS family in October 2019.
Since then I’ve had the time of my life. I also had the honor to meet great people and see such beautiful places. I couldn’t imagine a life without flying and I’m very excited to have the opportunity to show you the life of a flight attendant.
Ready for take-off?
