Spring Airlines Japan is a privately owned carrier and is funded by its Partner company ‘Spring Airlines’ and several other Japanese investors. Since launching in 2014, the airline has accelerated in growth to become one of Japan’s most popular carriers, flying to nine routes across China and Japan, including Tokyo, Osaka, and Sapporo – all flying the fleet of six Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

Spring Airlines symbolises the ethos of its airline through its logo – the three ‘S’ design represents Safety, Sincerity and Smile. 

If you are a Pilot looking for your next opportunity, could Japan be your next location?

Here are our top reasons to choose an opportunity with Spring Airlines in Japan as your next Pilot job:

Quality of life

Japan is one of the most forward-thinking countries in the world and a great ex-pat destination offering a high quality of life. Currently, there are around 2 million ex-pats living in Japan. The key reason why Japan is so popular with people looking to start a new life abroad is because of its fantastic education system, high healthcare standards and unique culture.  

It is also one of the most popular places to visit in the world, there is so much to see and do outside of flying. For example, you can walk around the bamboo gardens, eat local cuisine, head into the cities, enjoy the Japanese architecture or even go skiing on the snow-covered mountains. Whatever your interests are there is something for everyone.

Spring Airlines Japan also offer different rostering patterns to facilitate those who would like to commute and those who do not, ensuring you get the best quality of life in your Pilot career with them. Pilots can choose from either:

  • Non-commuting roster with 10 days off per month

OR

  • Commuting roster with 16 consecutive days off every two months worked

The people

The Japanese are renowned for being warm, welcoming and social. This alone is what makes Japan one of the most attractive places to live. In both work and social environments, the Japanese go that extra mile to accommodate their customers and ensure the people they meet feel welcome.

Japan truly set expectations when it comes to high-quality customer service. Whether you are at work, in the supermarket, passing someone in the street or eating in a restaurant, you’ll be greeted with a friendly smile.

Spring Airlines Japan is no different and the airline takes pride in its Japanese heritage and strong customer service. After all, part of their ethos is sincerity and a smile.

A scenic place to fly

Mount Fuji, the country’s holiest mountain sets the tone for Japan being one of the most picturesque places in the world. The variety of landscapes, like the cherry blossom trees, lakes, mountains, coastal beaches and even high-rise buildings in the major cities like Osaka and Tokyo all make Japan a rare place.

As a Pilot for Spring Airlines, you will get the opportunity to see so many beautiful sights from above, something most people don’t get to experience on a daily basis.

Great food

It is no secret that Japan is famous for its food and people even travel from all over the world just to try it. Living in Japan means you have the luxury of experiencing eating like a true local. There are countless restaurants and market stalls all selling authentic Japanese food.

You’ll find everything from typical Japanese food like sushi, miso soup, ramen, tempura, rice and curry to udon noodles. For the adventurous eaters, there are even more authentic local delicacies to choose from.

Unique culture

Japanese culture is distinctive because of its blend of ‘old meets new’. Traditional cultural activities include tea ceremonies, the kimono, bowing, sumo wrestling, food and entertainment such as Geishas. When it comes to modern culture, Japan leads the way in technology, animation and pop culture.

Even the supermarkets are stocked with fresh and local produce, making it easy to follow the healthy Japanese way of life and experiment with cooking local dishes at home. But if you are keen on sticking to a Western diet you’ll also find it easy to purchase your favourite food in the larger supermarkets and mainstream restaurants.

The cleanest place in the world

Japan is one of the cleanest countries in the world. The Japanese take great pride in recycling and ensuring the streets are litter-free. Everyone is expected to play their part in ensuring the country remains clean.

There is an unspoken rule that you should always take responsibility for your own litter (a reason why there are hardly any bins in Japan). It is normal to see people in the community taking part in regular voluntary clean-ups.

With Buddhism being a core religion in Japan, cleanliness is culturally important. So, whether it's at work (inside and out) or in and around your own home you are expected to follow the Japanese standard of good hygiene.

Safety

If you are looking for a safe place to live and work, Japan is the place to be. As the 9thsafest country on the Global Peace Index, it’s a great place to relocate to as an individual or to raise a family. Generally, it’s safe to walk alone at night and with crime rates across the country very low there is no cause for concern.
