The new program, called the Jazz Aviation Pathways Program for Flight Attendants, follows in the footsteps of Jazz’s successful Jazz Aviation Pathways Program for Pilots.

Jazz also announced that it has signed an agreement with Georgian College for the college to become the first organization to join the Jazz Aviation Pathways Program for Flight Attendants. The partnership was celebrated today at an event held at Georgian College in Barrie, Ont. Graduates from Georgian College’s Flight Services Program are eligible for referral to flight attendant positions at Jazz after graduation and upon meeting eligibility requirements.

“We are extremely pleased to launch our new Jazz Aviation Pathways Program for Flight Attendants and to welcome Georgian College to our program,” said Rhonda Bishop, Jazz’s director, Inflight and Onboard Product. “Working together to provide a career path for students interested in aviation, and specifically to flight attendant positions, is positive for the students, the college and for Jazz. We are excited to begin what we know will be a mutually beneficial working relationship.”

“Innovative industry partnerships like this one with Jazz have led to Georgian exceeding the provincial average for graduate employment for more than 20 years,” said Maher Ghalayini, dean of Business and Management, Hospitality, Tourism and Recreation. “With this partnership, Jazz will be setting our graduates on the fast-track to success as they launch their careers in aviation.”

The program will commence with Georgian College students registered in the Flight Services’ Program this 2019/2020 year.  Students who successfully complete this one-year program, and meet eligibility requirements, will interview with Jazz Aviation for open flight attendant positions. Jazz operates approximately 670 daily flights across Canada and the United States on behalf of Air Canada under the Air Canada Express brand, with a fleet of 116 aircraft.
