The general objective of this study was to offer social partners objective data to assess the impact of new forms of aircrew employment emerging in the Czech Republic (temporary emploment contracts, agency workers…) to detect abuses and to identify the subjective and objective reasons that motivate airlines and aircrews to use or not use forms of employment different from traditional indefinite employment. To analyse the possible impact of atypical contracts on safety and company cultures based interviews with operators, crew and HR specialists were realised, especially at two biggest employers in the sector – Czech Airlines and Travel Service. It was found that there is a difference between pilots and cabin crew in terms of atypical forms of employment. Pilots are still mostly employed for indefinite employment contract, atypical forms of employment (temporary employment contracts, part-time jobs) are rare, but welcomed by pilots since they enable more flexibility. However, cabin crew members are usually employed only for definite period (season) and indefinite employment contracts are rare.
