Want to experience the dynamics of the aviation industry from close by? A traineeship at KLM is the perfect place to start!



Various traineeship opportunities are offered to intermediate vocational students. These include traineeships as an Aircraft Maintenance Mechanic or Ground Stewardess, working on a project or providing supporting services within a department. The most suitable location or department depends on your study programme and level.


We offer dozens of traineeships every year for Aircraft Maintenance Mechanics and Ground Stewardesses. The initial selection is often made by the educational institution. If you are selected, we will invite you to an interview. For more information, see ‘Ground Stewardess Traineeship’ or ‘Aircraft Maintenance Mechanic Traineeship’.
