UK low-cost carrier easyJet will recruit more than 1,200 new permanent- and fixed-term cabin crew positions—the largest cabin crew intake in its 21-year history—as the LCC continues to grow.
Earlier this year, easyJet said it would hire more than 450 new pilots and provide career opportunities to promote first officers to captain positions.
The recruitment announcement was made just days after EasyJet Europe launched operations after securing an air operator’s certificate and operating license by Austrian aviation authorities.
EasyJet currently employs more than 6,900 cabin crew. A typical easyJet Airbus A319/320 includes three flight attendants and a cabin manager, who work closely with the captain and first officer.
EasyJet, which flies more than 270 aircraft on over 880 routes in 31 countries, will offer the new cabin crew positions across nearly all of its 28 European bases.
