On March 3, employers across the United States celebrate Employee Appreciation Day, highlighting the hard work, innovation and ambition of employees in their varying industries.
The U.S. airlines are proud to participate in this tradition, celebrating more than 700,000 airline employees who go to work every day to high-quality, good-paying careers. Additionally, U.S. airlines support 5 percent of the U.S. GDP and more than 10 million jobs across the country, in other industries ranging from hospitality and tourism to research and development. This growth increases demand and boosts our nation’s overall economic strength.
A career in aviation is more than a job. To prove that, we’d like to introduce you to a few dynamic airline employees who live #TheFlyLife every day.
