The length of your working day will vary, depending on how many sectors you are rostered to complete. The number of sectors may vary and is dependent on the length of the flight. Your working day may be affected by delays or changes to your flights. However the company strictly complies with the limits imposed by EASA as a minimum in relation to flying hours as well as adhering to the working time regulations.
Flight crew are given a roster four weeks in advance. Duty days will vary between early starts and late finishes. The number of sectors worked may include standby duties either at home or at the airport. Crew must be contactable either by a landline or a mobile telephone and be able to report for your duty (i.e. the crew room) within 90 minutes of receiving the call from the crewing department. The time off work will inevitably vary and you should expect to work weekends, Christmas and bank holidays as the airline operates 365 days of the year.
