Area 51’s secret airline is looking for flight attendants
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas — and everything after is classified.
Janet, an airline so secret the government has not yet acknowledged its existence, is in need of a new flight attendant. The job posting recently appeared on a website for AECOM, which operates a small fleet of planes that fly from McCarran International in Las Vegas to some of the most secretive government facilities in the country.
Little is known about the heavily guarded airline in Nevada, though some have joked Janet is actually an acronym for “Just Another Non-Existent Terminal” or “Joint Air Network for Employee Transportation.” Many speculate that it’s run by the U.S. Air Force.
The new flight attendant will be responsible for tasks typical to the position, like food and drink service, ensuring passenger safety and providing pre-flight safety demonstrations, according to the ad.
According to the U.S. Department of State website, that’s the highest possible level of security clearance.
Those without such clearances may still be able to spot planes from the top secret airline when they’re flying in and out of Vegas — the aircrafts include a fleet of white Boeing 737-600s with a red stripe down the middle and a smaller collection of commuter-sized turbprops with a blue strip, USA Today reported.
