Aircraft Cleaner

Our Cleaners play an important part in creating the important first impression when you get on an Air New Zealand aircraft. They are responsible for cleaning the interior of the aircraft as soon as it arrives at the gate and making sure it is presented back to our high standards in a very short timeframe so that we can have the next flight leave on time. It is a very team orientated role, with each person being responsible for their individual tasks.
