Employment Opportunities at Wings

Who we are:
Wings Airways is an employee owned floatplane company offering glacier flightseeing excursions from the historical Juneau downtown waterfront.

Guests from around the world daily make the choice to trust Wings to introduce them to all that is the amazing Juneau Icefield and historical Taku Glacier Lodge. We are a small company where every employee is an extremely valuable part of the “team”. We only hire a small staff each season and we require 110% of those hired.

This is the perfect position for people who function well in a fast paced, high-energy organization. We look for a positive can-do attitude, outgoing personality, genuine energy, and the desire to show guests the best that Southeast Alaska has to offer.
