The Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport operates with an administrative staff, maintenance, fire and police departments. The estimated 50 full- and part-time employees enjoy an interesting and eventful place to work.  No two days at the airport are ever the same. Couple this dynamic environment with a full range of benefits for full-time staff members, and you see why XNA is a great place to work! With that in mind, from time to time, employment opportunities become available.  It should be noted that due to volume and currency, resumes and employment applications are not kept on file. Only when there is an opening should an application be submitted for review. When a position is open at XNA, simply – Application For Employment(PDF).  Submit an application only if a position has been advertised and is open. While XNA owns and operates the airport, the tenants (such as air carriers, rental car agencies, food service, news/gift and others) all interview and hire their own employees. The Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport is an equal opportunity employer. If you are interested in employment with the airlines, the process begins online at their individual websites.  Once on their website, click on their ‘Careers’ button for further information.  If you are interested in employment with TSA as a Transportation Safety Officer, go to USAJobs.org for employment/application information.  Applications for The Paradies Shops may be obtained at the airport at one of the gift shops or restaurants.
