Company Overview:

Airquest is a premium shipping service that helps companies solve downtime by connecting them with a global network of on-board couriers. We utilize a network of professional travelers to transport mission-critical packages from anywhere in the world to anywhere in the world.

Job Description:

On-board courier will be escorting mission-critical packages from origin to destination using commercial flights booked by Airquest. You will be expected to pickup packages, hand-carry them to commercial airports, board flights and escort those shipments to final destination.

Average trip duration will be 2-3 days with destinations either in North America (US or Mexico) or abroad anywhere in Asia or Europe. Packages may be either carried on and stowed away in flight or checked in as baggage. You will often also be required to deliver those packages using a rental car or ride-sharing service. Throughout the process, you will be required to communicate updates on a mobile app.

It's important that applicant understands that this is a part-time position and couriers are 'on-call' meaning you may receive a notification for a mission and be required to accept it on short notice. Schedule flexibility is critical as you may be notified for an urgent mission on the day of departure. You must always have your bags packed!
