Norwegian Is Hiring a Remote Flight Operations Monitor

Going on a cruise should be relaxing, fun and stress-free. No one wants to start a vacation encountering problems with the flight to get to the cruise ship.

That’s where a flight operations monitor comes in — to coordinate air-to-sea travel for guests and make sure nothing goes wrong. Norwegian is looking for someone to fill this role for its cruise lines. After initial training at the company’s Miami office, you’re free to do this job from the comfort of your home.
