Update 4/15/20 – As you may realize, most of the airline companies below aren't doing much hiring right now due to COVID-19. Many flights are grounded and not a lot of travel is happening. But be sure to keep tabs on these companies for when things open back up! They all sometimes have work at home jobs.
When I search for work from home jobs, I occasionally come across various work from home airline jobs. It might surprise you there are some reputable airlines who actually use home-based agents to book flights and perform customer service duties.
For today's post, I've done the research and made a list of four major airlines that sometimes have home-based openings.
One downside — these companies all require that you work onsite for a while prior to being allowed to work from home. So this might not be an option for you depending on where you're located.
Please keep in mind the companies listed below aren't always hiring. I have provided this list for you as a reference to know what airlines to keep tabs on for work at home jobs.
In addition, the jobs below are exclusively US-based. But I'm happy to list some worldwide airline jobs if anyone is aware of them. Just comment and let me know!
4 Work From Home Airline Jobs
1. Alaska Airlines
This company has occasional openings for work at home reservation agents. You will need to live within 100 miles of their call center in Kent, WA so you can attend onsite training prior to working from home.
Training lasts for six months. You must have a lot of flexibility in your schedule because they assign shifts to you. Per the most recent job listing, pay is $12.14 hourly.

2. American Airlines
This company has frequent openings for home-based reservation reps.
When the position is available, they typically hire people living in or near Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX, Cary, NC, and Miami, FL. American Airlines generally requires that you live within a 50 mile radius of the locations they hire in so you can come in for a face-to-face interview and work onsite for approximately ten weeks prior to being allowed to work from home.
It is mostly entry-level, you just need to be at least 18 years old with a high school diploma or GED. Pay is around $10+ hourly with opportunities for raises.
Go here to search jobs at American Airlines. You will need to type “work from home” or “home based” as your keyword to see if they have home based openings.

3. Delta Airlines
This company has occasional work from home airline jobs open, in reservations and sales and service.
When they are hiring for this, the locations vary. I have seen the job open in Utah, Minnesota, Texas, and also Atlanta, GA.
They require you to work onsite for six months prior to working from home. Pay varies, but most of the older job postings I've seen for Delta indicate it is over $10 hourly.
Go here to see open jobs at Delta. You will need to select the reservations category to see if there are any available work at home jobs.
JetBlue has occasional work at home reservations crew openings.
The position typically requires training onsite for a period of time in Salt Lake City, Utah. When training is completed, you are free to work from home. JetBlue does require at least two years of past customer service experience.
They offer benefits and travel perks, although some of the Glassdoor reviews show complaints about low pay.
Go here to see open jobs at JetBlue. Note that when this position is open, it's listed under “reservations crew”.
Good luck if you decide to apply for any open work from home airline jobs. And again, please do not become discouraged if the jobs aren't open now. They come and go regularly.
