Roster Our classification period is 35 days of which 20 days will be working days and 15 will be free days (for full-time contracts). You are always free for at least 3 consecutive days and work for 6 consecutive days at the most. You can submit requests in the classification system (Jeppesen). LEAVE: Upon entering service, you are entitled to 19 paid holiday days and 6 scheduled days off. Apart from that, you have 4 days off that you can request after the publishing of your schedule (up to 1 per quarter). Given that you need to use 4 days to get 1 week of holiday, this gives you 7 weeks of holiday a year. Every pilot is entitled to a 3 consecutive week holiday in the summer period between May and September. Transavia has a production peak in the school holidays which means that you will not be granted the period of your choice every year. Granting of the requested holiday is done according to seniority and assigned ‘priority points’ (priority points are assigned when previous holiday requests are rejected).
