In response to Bonza Airlines sudden administration, the Flight Attendants’ Association of Australia (FAAA) has launched a GoFundMe campaign titled ‘Support Bonza Cabin Crew in Crisis.’

This initiative seeks immediate financial support for the cabin crew, who were significantly impacted following the airline’s unexpected move into administration last week.
Bonza cabin crew have been your first responders in the skies, and now they need your urgent help.

Following Bonza’s entering administration last week, airline staff were stood down only three days before payday to be told they cannot be paid for the previous month. This has meant that Bonza cabin crew, already living pay cheque to pay cheque under minimum award conditions now face rent, mortgage repayments, power, gas, and food and other bills that they simply cannot afford.

Out of a job due to no fault of their own, Bonza cabin crew need your urgent help to get them and their families through this crisis. The FAAA will securely manage the funds and distribute donated monies to the Bonza crew who have registered with the FAAA as needing assistance.

Recognising the urgent need for support, the FAAA has also successfully lobbied Qantas to extend their Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to the displaced Bonza employees. This program provides critical counselling and support services to those left without support in these challenging times.

The Flight Attendants’ Association of Australia are committed to supporting their members during this challenging time and express their deepest gratitude for any support provided by the community.

“In unity, we appeal for your support. Our crew members have always been there to ensure your safety and comfort in the skies; it is now our turn to stand by them in their time of need,” said Teri O’Toole, representing the FAAA.
