Meet the Team
How long have you been working
for Flybe and what attracted you
to your role?
I’ve worked at Flybe for three years.
I grew up across three continents
and have always been interested in
travelling, so it seemed fitting to work
for an airline.
What does your day-to-day job
I book accommodation and ground
transport for all flight crew across the
Flybe network. I work 12-hour shifts
in the control room, with a pattern of
three days on and three days off.
What do you enjoy most about
It’s an exciting, busy job full of
constant change, and it makes me
feel like a vital part of the operation
to get flights running smoothly,
on time and fully crewed.
What’s the most memorable thing
that’s happened to you at work?
This winter during a heavy bout of
snow, I worked overtime to help deal
with the problems that arose. Flybe
were kind enough to accommodate
everyone trapped at the airport in a
hotel nearby. It was a nice opportunity
to get to know other airport staff,
engineers and crew, who we rarely
have the chance to interact with.
What three words would your friends
use to describe you?
Quirky. Adventurous. Happy.
What do you enjoy doing when
you’re not at work?
Ironically, my spare time is spent
travelling! I’m in Vienna right now
as I’m typing this :).
Where’s your favourite tried-and-
tested Flybe destination?
It’s hard to choose just one because
I’ve visited so many. I’d say Lyon,
Dublin, Alicante or Edinburgh. But I
keep going back to Lyon for the food,
language and new-found friends.
Where’s good to go there?
I would highly recommend the Musée
Miniature et Cinéma in the old town.
There are many historic museums
but this has really unusual film props
from a lot of popular franchises, e.g.
. The old town area is stunning
in itself, with many places to eat.
What’s the number one destination
you’d most like to visit from the Flybe
network – and why?
Bastia, on the island of Corsica,
because I’ve never been.
What’s one thing people are most
surprised to discover about you?
I have two giant African land snails
called Shelly and Schmichael.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Hostels. Although I book more formal
accommodation for crew in my job,
I enjoy staying in hostels for the
Hotel and Transport Coordinator
