Having the opportunity to create awesome content is one heck of a job perk

We all wish we had more time (and money) to explore the world.

And while many of us are fortunate to live in the UAE where the travel options are endless, we don't all have the luxury of checking out a new city on a weekly basis.

What if your job was to be on the go, constantly flying from country to country? What would you do with your free time? How would you document your travels?

These social-savvy cabin crew members from Etihad Airways use their Instagram to capture their adventures abroad. From Zanzibar to Moscow, these ladies aren’t shy when it comes to sharing snaps of what they get up to during their layovers.

We've rounded up some of our favourite Etihad Airways cabin crew members (along with their gorgeous Instagram feeds) below.

Check them out and let us know your favourite in the comments.

Ksenia Babenko (@crewksusha)

Fun fact: Ksenia was one of forty-seven ladies that represented Etihad Airways at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in 2017.

Check out her feed for more behind the scenes snaps - and even more amazing shots of her layover adventures.

Dasha Solnechnaya (@daria_sol_)

While she doesn't post photos of herself in her Etihad uniform on social media, Dasha's Insta-feed would still make any aspiring wanderlust jealous. From shopping in Seoul to sightseeing in Brussels, this girl has a pretty sweet work-life balance. 

Check her out on Instagram for both fashion and travel inspiration.

Giovanna Giacon (@gigiacon)

This Brazilian crew member was also selected to represent the UAE's national airline at The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2017.

When she's not flying, Giovanna is sharing pool-side snaps at her tropical layovers. #jealousmuch


If you didn't know any better, you would think this Etihad crew member spends all of her free time in tropical paradises around the world. A quick scroll through her Insta-feed shows snap after snap of lush greenery and turquoise-blue waters.

When he's not flying around the world, Alex uses his spare time to focus on his travel photography and fitness.
