„FLYLINE is a true melting point of cultures. More than 50 nations working under one roof – and doing so as a family with an open environment”

Angela Waerdt is a human resources expert who loves working in the travel industry. Trained as a travel agent, she learned her trade from the bottom up, gathered a wealth of experience along the way, and expanded her professional expertise with studies in tourism. Since the start of the millennium she’s been using her skillset for FLYLINE and has gained insight into the unique work culture present in the company. As she herself puts it: “In the FLYLINE family, it’s all about the people. Many of our colleagues have been for years with us, and have therefore gotten the opportunity to master a wide array of positions and complex tasks. In contrast with many companies in the same industry, we adamantly oppose the hire-and-fire mentality”.

Experiencing development of the industry up close
After having experienced a repertoire of unique experiences as a tourist guide, personnel officer and the travel agency industry, Angela Waerdt was convinced by her friends to move into a then small company called FLYLINE, in the small city of Bremen along the Weser river. Ever since, it has been a journey full of success, and in 2004 this culminated with her being named the Head of Human Resources & People Development. From leading recruitment campaigns that reach all across Europe to securing a spot in one the largest Tourism Forums in Germany, the ITB, she’s always helped lead Flyline into being at the forefront of the industry.

When asked about what she thinks the highlights of the company are, she always comes back to one of her own experiences: “My private adventure on the jump seat in the cockpit of a British Airways flight. To me, our travel benefits are unequivocally one of our greatest benefits”. 

After being inquired if there’s anything that’s transformed the industry since the time of her joining, the native of North Rhein-Westphalia stated: “The digitalization of work life and daily social media involvement hands down. We endeavor to discover what makes a good employer and how applicants want to be found by potential employers. Furthermore, the daily operations and working structures of the human resources department are affected by the aforementioned digital progress”.

A day with the fashion guru
Whilst she’s very happy with her job and isn’t even remotely thinking of trading it, there is one thing that she’d like to try for a day: “A little chit-chat with Karl Lagerfeld in his Chanel Studios whilst designing some clothes would be lovely”. It comes as no surprise then, that amongst her hobbies we not only find social events, but also fashion, furnishing and knitting.
