Employment Opportunities at Wings Airways
Who we are:

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.
The Visitor Season: Early May through the end of September we provide tours. Most visitors will only have a few hours to a day to experience Juneau. We work long hours, and operate seven days a week.
The Tours: We have offered the following two tours since our beginnings…and chose not to expand so that we can continue to do what we do best!
- The Taku Lodge Feast & 5-Glacier Seaplane Discovery
- The 5-Glacier Seaplane Exploration
