Jetstar gives dream job to Down Syndrome girl

Must See 05/04/2019

JetStar has made the dreams of one 25-year-old girl from Queensland come true.

Georgia Knoll has Down Syndrome and has always wanted to become a member of a airline's cabin crew.

JetStar crew heard about her story, and extended an invitation to train with crew and pilots at Brisbane Airport.

After a day of learning the ropes, Georgia was given her uniform and wings badge - a tradition before a cabin crew member takes their first flight.

Georgia then welcomed customers onboard and assisted with the all-important safety briefing.

She was also in charge of dishing out the meals on the flight back to her hometown of Mackay.

JetStar says those who worked with Georgia loved the experience.

"Georgia is so full of life and is great with our customers, she was such a fantastic addition to our team and we all felt so lucky to have her spend the day with us," an unnamed flight attendant told the airline.

This isn't the first time Georgia has appeared on camera. An impromptu takeover of a live cross on a local news bulletin made her an internet star within hours in 2016.

Georgia is passionate about sending a positive message to people living with a disability.

"Being a flight attendant is [about] making people happy," Georgia said.

"I'm just trying to break through barriers, push everything aside and be yourself".
