Careers on the ground - Baggage Handling
The efficiency of baggage delivery can have a big impact on whether an aircraft can push back on time. Our Baggage Handlers know how important it is to work quickly to ensure baggage is loaded and unloaded in sufficient time to keep flights on schedule.
The job of a Baggage Handler is a physical one. You could be lifting bags of up to 32kg weight for a good part of your shift. Every bag needs to be scanned so that it can be retrieved quickly if, for example, the bag's owner does not board the aircraft. As a Baggage Handler you will need to be conscientious and quick to ensure you play your part in the aircraft taking off on time.
