Raymond Esveldt, Captain:
I have now worked for Transavia for 17 years and enjoy it immensely. The biggest plus point for me is that I sleep in my own bed almost every night - perfect if you have a family. The large route network brings you to very many places. We fly to big airports with all imaginable facilities and to small airports where the navigation aids are limited and the platform is full with only three aircraft. Not all runways have the standard straight-in approach with a 3 degree glide path. There are enough destinations with tricky features such as altitude or weather conditions to challenge you to draw on your experience as a pilot. I would describe the atmosphere among the colleagues as ‘relaxed but professional’. The flying is given the serious attention that it needs, but there is also space for enjoyment together. I very much enjoy working like this.
Gregory Sneeuw, First Officer:
Working at Transavia to me means working with motivated colleagues who all have a green heart. The corps is very divers and trained by extremely experienced instructors. Other positive aspects of Transavia are the career opportunities both in and outside the cockpit. You can contribute to the company in more ways than ‘just’ flying. The wide network spread across Europe, Africa and the Middle East and the pleasant and informal atmosphere in the organisation and on board.
Linda Berg, First Officer:
Transavia is a friendly and forward looking company. Flying here is very varied - no two days are the same. You work with pleasant, motivated colleagues and we turn every day into a great trip. I can also combine my work with my family and private life. There are also enough opportunities in the company to contribute in one way or another, such as in holding other positions. We fly to great destinations with solid aircraft. I enjoy every day, especially if I see the sun rising or setting!
Hans Hienkens, Captain:
If your hobby is flying, you’re in the right place at Transavia. Lots of take-offs and landings at a variety of airports, from Greek islands and popular city trip destinations to Norwegian fjords and snow-covered runways in Lapland. And the best views in the world, which you share with professional and motivated colleagues.
