What does a Ramp Agent do?

As a Ramp Agent you’ll be key part of every customers journey. Responsible for the safe handling of aircraft, baggage and ground equipment.

Not everyone gets to work with aircraft day in and day out, getting them ready to fly all over Europe by:

  • Maintaining the highest standards of safety and security at all times
  • Using Ground Equipment such as Belt Loaders, Aircraft Steps and Power Units
  • Loading/Unloading of passenger baggage

  • Transport of Baggage & Cargo to and from the aircraft
  • Sorting Baggage to ensure it goes to the correct flight

Working as part of our fantastic team, with full training provided, you will be equipped to be the best of the best.

Our Ramp Agents are flexible, proactive and professional. You’ll be balancing Operational Excellence and Safety at all times and have a desire to deliver far in excess of the customers expectations.
