Line service technicians generally work in airports and will be on their feet and moving around in vehicles for most of the day. Their main responsibilities involve towing aircraft from arriving or departing areas, supplying fuel, and loading and offloading baggage or cargo depending on the type of aircraft. These technicians may also need to supply particular aircraft with oxygen or water, clean their lavatories and ensure they are ready for passengers, and help de-ice their exteriors during the winter.
Generally, several line service technicians work together on specific aircraft and report to a supervisor who assigns duties and responsibilities to each of them. Those in this position must have good communication skills, as they will often be required to work with customers/passengers to ensure an ideal flight experience. (Copyright 2017 PayScale.com)
