Business Aviation

History

Air 2000 was launched on 11 April 1987 with the remit to build a
new kind of charter airline combining exceptional value for money with unprecedented
levels of service, reliability and performance.

«We don’t carry businessmen to business meetings — we
fly adventurers and sun seekers to exciting destinations around the world».

In its ten year history, Air 2000 has established itself as a leading charter airline by
listening to its customers and introducing innovative practices ahead of its competitors.

Winning the coveted Golden Globe Award for
«Best UK Charter Airline» six times since its inception in 1990, proves that our
efforts are recognised and appreciated by our customers.

Created as «Tomorrow’s Airline Today», the name Air 2000 was chosen for the airline subsidiary of the then Owners
Abroad Group.

For the company’s first season, two brand new
Boeing 757’s were operated, enabling the airline to undertake some 35 flights per week
from its Manchester base to 12 popular Mediterranean destinations. By 1990, the fleet had
grown to eight 757’s plus a single 148-seat Boeing 737-300.

Even in the early days, Air 2000’s
quality was recognised when it was ranked fourth in a survey on leisure airlines by Holiday Which, the only UK carrier to appear in the top five.

By this time the carrier was flying an intensive
series if IT services from Manchester and Glasgow to the Mediterranean and Orlando,
Florida. Air 2000 also added Gatwick as one of its UK departure points,
providing seats for operators other than its Owners Abroad parent. Other long-haul routes
were soon added including Kenya, Mexico and the Caribbean.

A successful application to the UK CAA resulted
in the grant of a licence to operate scheduled flights to
Larnaca and Paphos in Cyprus. In 1992, four Airbus A320’s configured, with 179 seats, were
added for use on short-haul European charters.

Following a change of senior management in 1995, the Owners Abroad group was rebranded as First
Choice Holidays PLC. Some 75% of Air 2000’s passengers
are from First Choice with more than 25 other tour operators making up the balance.

In 1997, Air 2000 together with Landor, the recognised leader in airline
corporate identity design, undertook the first re-brand of its image. The idea was to
create a design which would, by incorporating various cultural icons, reflect the
destinations to which the airline flys. Displaying the tapestry theme on our aircraft
tells the world at a glance that we fly our customers to exotic and fun places where they
can sample the delights of foreign culture for themselves.

The airline’s growth has been consistent and
steady. The fleet now has SEVENTEEN aircraft (13 757s & 4 A320s), operating 20,000
flights a year. We fly from fourteen regional airports in the UK and Ireland — carrying
over five million passengers — to more than fifty destinations around the world. Following
the acquisition of leading tour operator Unijet PLC by First Choice Holidays in July 1998,
the seven aircraft in the Unijet airline Leisure International will be incorporated into
the Air 2000 fleet during the winter season 1998/99. With a total of
TWENTY-FOUR aircraft, Air
2000 will then be the second largest UK
charter airline.

Ground
Operations Co-ordinator

Based within ground operations, the key purpose of the
Ground Operations Co-ordinator (GOC) is to work closely with our service partners to meet Air 2000’s high expectations of customer service and punctuality.
GOCs prepare flightdeck and cabin crew paperwork and oversee the smooth running of
check-in and boarding for our passengers, in addition to supervising the cleaning and
preparation of the aircraft between landing and takeoff. Duties include liaison with our
Operations Department, handling agents and contracted agencies to ensure the highest
levels of customer care for our passengers during their time at the airport. The job can
be very demanding, yet also rewarding, and you must be able to think quickly on your feet.
Candidates should hold a full current driving licence, be resourceful, motivated and
willing and able to work a flexible shift roster. Previous aviation experience is not
essential, but is preferred as is working experience with the general public.

We take on a number of temporary GOCs during the summer
months to work at our bases. If you think you meet these requirements, then please forward
a postcard requesting an application form, to the address shown above for cabin crew,
marking your envelope GOC Recruitment (Cl).

Other
Career Opportunities

Our main operational base is at Manchester Airport with
Flight Operations, Human Resources, Customer Services and Engineering based there. Our
Training Centre is located at Manchester Airport.

Our main administrative base is situated not far from
Gatwick Airport, at First Choice House, Crawley, West Sussex, where our Finance, Corporate
and Commercial departments are based. There are financial, commercial planning, in-flight
retail, general administrative and other professional positions frequently available
within these departments.

The types of position at Manchester and Crawley, in
addition to a few ground staff and engineering roles at our other bases, are mainly office
based and range from administrative and technical, to professional and managerial. In
order to give you a broad overview of what each of our departments is responsible for, we
have given you some further information below:

Customer
Services (MANCHESTER)

This department oversees all areas which have a direct
interface with the customer, ranging from dealing with passengers’ requests, to managing
our Airport bases, to providing administrative support for our cabin crew. Significant
emphasis is placed on operational management and control in a busy aviation environment.

Posts range from Administrators and Customer Relations
Executives, to Airport Managers and In-flight Services roles.

Some direct experience of dealing with customers is
essential for the majority of posts in this area. Any training you have had in this and in
related areas will be an added advantage.

Engineering
(MANCHESTER)

The primary role of our Engineering department is to
ensure that our aircraft are available in the right condition, at the right place and at
the right time. The safety aspect is paramount and they also have the responsibility to
provide safe and comfortable aircraft for flying our passengers to and from their
destination, in addition to determining how our aircraft should look, both internally and
externally.

Our CAA-licensed engineers are involved in all aspects of
both aircraft maintenance management and powerplant management, and previous engineering
experience is vital to work in these areas. Following our pending expansion into the
long-haul market, Air 2000 has this year taken the exciting
step of setting up its own line maintenance stations at five additional UK bases. From May
1998, fully trained and experienced Air 2000 engineers will
maintain our aircraft at Gatwick, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Newcastle.

However, there are other areas where formal engineering
qualifications are not required. For example, our Technical Records Clerks are responsible
for entering important technical data onto our computer system. The Planning and
Production section produces our comprehensive aircraft maintenance schedules. In addition,
there is the Materials section which manages the complex task of ensuring that we have the
right spares available at the right place and time, to maintain our aircraft in
first-class condition. Although previous experience is not always necessary for employment
in those areas, you will need to be computer literate.

Flight
Operations (MANCHESTER)

«Jetset Ops» provides a 24 hour, 365 days a year
‘flight watch’ service and monitors and co-ordinates the progress of all our flights. Our
daily programme is adjusted as necessary to take account of delays, technical problems or
inclement weather, in conjunction with Crewing and Rostering who plan our cabin crew and
flight deck working schedules.

Rostering Officers, who assist in the production of all
aircrew roster’s, need good organisational skills and must be able to work under pressure.
Crewing Officers operate on a shift basis and maintain all Air 2000
aircrew roster’s, use computers extensively and need good communications skills and
tolerance.

Previous experience in aviation is advantageous but not
essential. Our Operations Controllers work shifts and deal with the flying programme on
the day and deal with any changes, such as weather, delays and Air Traffic Control
problems. Previous experience in this field is vital, as you will be required to think on
your feet and react constantly to changing situations.

All pilot training and recruitment is undertaken by the
Flight Operations department. There are administrators and safety trainers, who need to
have excellent knowledge of safety and emergency procedures, there are also specialised
areas who develop the most cost-effective routes for our aircraft to fly, which requires
previous experience.

Human
Resources (MANCHESTER)

This department provides professional advice and support
to all line managers on matters such as employment law, terms and conditions and HR
policies. HR is responsible for training and development, co-ordinates ground staff
recruitment and induction, and oversees our Staff Travel Department which enables staff to
take advantage of discounted travel opportunities. Although a small team, we would
normally expect applicants to be educated to degree level and, ideally, to be
professionally qualified via the Institute of Personnel and Development.

Commercial
(CRAWLEY)

Our Commercial department’s key responsibilities are to
plan and sell the airline’s flying programmes each season, to communicate these within and
outside the airline to agents and to manage the supply of charter seats to our sister
company First Choice Holidays and Flights. The department works closely with all other
departments, but particularly so with our Operations, Engineering and Finance departments,
to ensure well-planned and profitable flying programmes. It also works closely with both
the internal and external customers and also external providers of aviation.

Previous aviation experience is invaluable in this key
area as is good business acumen, numeracy, commercial and operational awareness.

Customer
Services (CRAWLEY)

The In-flight Retail, department is responsible for the
provision of our duty free and gift ranges on the aircraft, as well as in-flight
entertainment in the form of our videos and magazines. Our In-flight Catering department
is also primarily based here.

If you are interested in either of these areas, you should
have excellent attention to detail and be able to work on your own initiative and under
pressure. Previous retail/catering experience would be an advantage.

Finance
(CRAWLEY)

Providing accurate financial information for Air 2000, the Finance department ensures that we have the best
financial controls in place.

All the typical financial functions are incorporated,
including payroll, cashiers and company accounts. In addition, we have employees who
calculate and analyse all flight costs and bar accounts.

Numeracy and accuracy are vital in all our financial
roles, in addition to good computer skills. For higher level posts, including Financial
Accountants, we ask for recognised accountancy qualifications.

If there are vacancies in any of the above
positions they are generally advertised in the Job Centres at Manchester and Gatwick
Airports. Should you wish to apply, please apply in writing to the address below. If you
wish to register your interest for any future opportunities, please enclose a letter
outlining the areas of work you are interested in and send it, together with you CV, to:

Human Resources (www)
Air 2000 Ltd
7th Floor
Commonwealth House

What can we offer you in return?

A competitive salary, with generous holiday concessions
after a qualifying period, company pension scheme and permanent health insurance, in
addition to a subsidised private health care scheme and a uniform which is provided to all
staff (except managers). You will receive excellent training and have the opportunity of
working for a dynamic, successful and forward-thinking company.

You will also get every encouragement to take up other
career opportunities, wherever possible, either within Air 2000
or The First Choice Group.

Air 2000 Scheduled Flights to Cyprus

Air 2000 is undoubtedly best known as a charter airline and as such
the airline has won numerous awards, however, since October 1993 Air
2000 has been operating scheduled flights from the UK to Cyprus. Air 2000’s scheduled flights have been so successful that the
airline is now the UK’s leading scheduled airline to Cyprus with a third share of the
total market (UK CAA figures).

Why
is Air 2000 «first choice» for one in three people
flying to Cyprus when the «traditional» scheduled airlines operate many more
flights?

There are a number
of reasons……

The vast majority of people
flying to Cyprus are travelling on holiday whether they fly with Air
2000 or its competitors. Air 2000 is a holiday airline
with a well deserved reputation for providing award winning yet friendly service. This
same service is provided on the scheduled flights to Cyprus.

Air 2000 is consistently rated Number
1 by the UK tour operators whose clients travel with many scheduled and charter airlines —
Air 2000 is the travel professional’s choice

Price is important, but most people would agree that value
for money
is more important.

In-flight video and audio entertainment is available
on all Air 2000 scheduled flights — surprisingly this feature
is not available on all scheduled flights to Cyprus even those offering «Business
Class» seating. A small charge is made for the reusable takeaway headset.

Air 2000 operate
non-stop flights from Manchester and Birmingham as well as London’s Gatwick Airport
to both Larnaca and Paphos.

Most Air 2000 scheduled
flights are day flights.

From May 1999 Air 2000 will fly to Cyprus from Glagow.

Seating
For your ease and comfort,
and at no extra charge, passengers who have booked «seat only» tickets through
Air 2000 are automatically pre-seated together on our scheduled flights — it is not
necessary to request this service. In this context adjacent aisle seats are considered
together.

It is now also possible for
able bodied adult passengers to pre-reserve extra leg room seats (subject to availability)
within one month of flight departure. Extra leg room seats can be reserved upon payment of
Ј15 one way or Ј30 round trip (credit cards only) through Air 2000
Customer Relations on 0870 7572757 no later than 7 days before departure.
