Zoom UK

Zoom Uk have started recruiting cabin crew for their new operation out of LGW. All applications are being handled online. Apparently they are looking for Cabin Managers and Cabin Crew.

www.airlinerecruitment-zoomuk.com is the site

Should be quite a good opportunity for those wanting to join a new operation with solid foundations.

does anyone know exactly what airports Zoom Uk will be flying to? i know on the recruitment website it says the East coast of America, but just wondered if anyone had any more info.

Also, do you know how they will be working their standby duties? Will standbys be interspersed within your normal monthly rosta? Or will you have a whole month of standby duties?

Thanks to anyone who has any info!!

Zoom.

Based at London Gatwick, you will be flying on long-haul routes and it's envisaged that you will be undertaking between five and six trips per month. Most of these will be three-day trips to the east coast of North America. As there route network expands, roster patters will change over time to encompass new destinations and trips of up to five days.

What experience do you need to be a senior or a cabin manager?

Zoom stby

Just sent my application off for Zoom at the end of the form it says that one day standbys will be rostered the day before a rostered flight and that they will being doing this until more routes start up then it will be a block standby.
They also state that due to crew fatigue they want all crew to commute the night before although not sure how they plan to enforce this.
Still not 100% on the routes they will be doing ??? Can't find anymore info even the Zoom website has no route information.

It was at the end when you confirm everything is true and accurate and you send it away. Did you get the confirmation email shortly afterwards?

i too have applied and didn't see this at the end of the application. i got a confirmation email, but nothing in that either about standbys...however, i suppose that has to be good news for commuting crew. but if they want to enforce that crew commute down the night before a trip they will have to provide accomodation, or at least give a crew discount i would have thought...
