Airline seeks hundreds of new staff for summer season

09:19 10/01/2017

Belgian airline TUI Fly – previously Jetairfly – intends to take on 330 new aircrew in preparation for the summer season. The airline is looking for 70 pilots and 260 cabin crew.

The staff are needed because the airline intends to add new destinations, as well as increasing the frequency of flights to cities it currently serves. Cabin crew will be hired on temporary contracts running until the end of October.

“We don’t need as many people in the winter. That’s typical for the sector,” a company spokesperson said. “But we hope to be able to keep on board those who make an impression.” The new cabin staff will undergo eight weeks’ training, with the possibility of a language course.

TUI Fly, part of the Hanover-based tourism group TUI, operates out of all five Belgian airports – Brussels, Ostend, Antwerp, Liège and Charleroi – with a fleet of 25 planes and, after the new appointments, a staff of 1,150.
