The 13 South Jersey residents hired by Global Crossing Airlines to serve as the charter airline’s first cadre of Atlantic City-based flight attendants arrive at Atlantic City International Airport on Monday after completing their training in Miami.

You might think these things are true about flying, but they are not. Buzz60’s Keri Lumm has more.

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — Thirteen South Jersey residents who were recently hired by Global Crossing Airlines, aka GlobalX, to serve as its first cadre of Atlantic City-based flight attendants completed their four-week training program in Miami and returned to Atlantic City International Airport on Monday.

The first three weeks of employee orientation and training took place at the National Aviation Research and Technology Park near Atlantic City International, where GlobalX’s northeast charter operations will begin in October. The 11 women and two men were selected from more than 100 applicants. Eleven are residents of Atlantic County, one is from Ocean County and one is from Cumberland County, according to the company.

“The flight attendant positions attracted a lot of interest and are another example of our efforts to bring new businesses to Atlantic County and create new, high-paying jobs,” Atlantic County Economic Alliance President Lauren H. Moore Jr. said in a news release. “We have established a strong relationship with GlobalX and look forward to additional opportunities to partner.”

GlobalX will be flying Airbus A320 aircraft for casinos, cruise lines, major hotel and resort destinations, and incentive groups, the company said. Initially, the airline plans to fly routes from Atlantic City International to destinations including Canada, Florida and the Caribbean.

The company also has contracts to fly the Temple and Monmouth university football teams out of ACY.

In July, GlobalX signed an airport use agreement with the South Jersey Transportation Authority, the owner and operator of the airport. It also is exploring a potential land lease agreement for development of a new hangar and maintenance facility at the site, the release states.
