Airports are amazing mini-cities where there are hundreds of different jobs you can do. We spoke tothree people who do very different things.

Sarah May, 34, terminal duty manager
'l started on the information desk and I did that for two years. Most of the time people were friendly, but occasionally l had to deal with some difficult questions and some very angry people. Last year, I became a terminal duty manager. Now I deal with all kinds of things. including passenger complaints. visits by the rich and famous, heating failures, cleaning contracts, and health issues. In fact, I spend a lot of time walking around and talking to people on my mobile.’

john Hammond, 23, baggage handler
‘Doing this job means I'm very fit, because I have to carry bags and suitcases and put them onto the baggage trucks. The best thing about my job is the people I work with. We have a lot of fun at work. The worst thing is the shift work. I hate working at night and very early in the morning. I don't think I'm going to do this job for ever, but I'll probably look for something else in the airport because I think it's a really exciting place to work.‘

Tessa Reed, 28, airport engineer
‘I studied engineering at university and worked in an office for a few years. I was quite bored, so when I saw an advert for an engineer at Heathrow airport, I decided to apply. There are all kinds of things to deal with here — ventilation. heating, escalators. lifts - my job can be very busy sometimes. So many things can go wrong! I'm usually very tired when I get home, but I enjoy doing different things each day.’
