Dear Mr. Logan:

I am writing to apply for a Baggage Handler position at Conway Air. My physical stamina, knowledge of airport warehouse operations and 2 years’ experience as a ramp agent makes me a perfect candidate for this position.

As evident from my references, I have been commended for my thoroughness and physical agility by my superiors many times. The instances when I was required to handle passengers’ baggage, I was provided with much appreciation as I already knew how to operate the vehicles and equipment used in this work. I am a meticulous individual and this detail-orientation is apparent from my work. Moreover, I am competent at transporting baggage to and from aircrafts and have the physical agility to back it up. Since I have worked at the airports, I am familiar with the safety procedures that need to be taken into account when performing any task that requires direct contact with an aircraft.

I am excited at the prospect of working for Conway Air as a baggage handler and would like to meet with you in person to discuss your needs and my baggage handling skills. You may reach me at (000) 333-3333 if you need any additional information.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Warm regards,

Joshua Christopher
