The men and women of Air France are the airline’s leading resource and contribute to the success of the company on a daily basis.
Air France is a leading international airline which offers a wide variety of careers, from the most iconic, such as airline pilot for example, to the less well-known, as flight firming manager, on whom the profitability of a route depends.
Air France aims to cultivate a calm social climate, maintaining competitiveness and ensuring responsible management of its workforce. Air France KLM’s Social Ethics Charter, signed in February 2008, forms the common core of the group’s commitments, reaffirming the values and rights that guide its social policy.
In 2013, Air France spent a total of close to 192 million euros on staff training (ground staff, crew, local staff and expatriates). This commitment demonstrates the company's investment in the development of each employee's skills and qualifications and in accompanying change in each sector of activity.
Air France has a staff control policy to improve competitiveness and profitability. This has meant giving priority to in-house resources and promoting professional and geographical mobility.
Careers are divided between ground staff and flight crews.
Among the ground staff, there are 12 different types of activity, related for example to operations (mechanics, airport staff, flight coordinators, etc.), sales or administration (head office and regional management).
Flight crews include the cockpit crews (pilots) and the cabin crews (flight attendants).
