This study investigates the relationship between organisational socialization and employee spontaneous behaviour of Nigerian airline operators using cross sectional survey from seventy five employees of selected five airline operators. Sample size of sixty three was ascertained using Krejcie and Morgan. Face validity was employed while cronbach alpha was used to ascertain the reliability of the instrument. Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient (rs) was used to analyse the hypotheses with the aid of SPSS (20.0). The study found that organisational socialization has positive significant relationship with employee spontaneous behaviour. It concluded that organisational socialization measured in terms of anticipatory socialization, encounter socialization and metamorphosis socialization enhances employee spontaneous behaviour of Nigeria airlines. One of the recommendations of the study is that; airline operators should take socialization of newcomers seriously to enhance spontaneous behaviour in the workplace.
