easyJet needs to fill hundreds of aircraft cabin crew jobs

Low-cost airline easyJet is recruiting for 1,500 seasonal crew roles across Europe for its summer operations between March and October next year.

Some 1,100 of the jobs being advertised are set to be based in the UK alongside 250 seasonal crew set to return to the airline having operated last summer.

With sufficient pilots already in place to support operations for summer 2022, the airline is also looking to reopen its cadet pipeline, starting with taking on 150 newly-qualified cadet pilots in the UK who had originally been due to join the airline at the beginning of the pandemic.

They will now join between January and April 2022. In addition to this, the airline is planning to begin recruitment in the coming weeks for experienced Airbus pilots, to be based in Europe.

Johan Lundgren, easyJet chief executive, said: “With the recovery underway, we are ready and able to seize opportunities and our seasonal crew are integral to this.

“As the largest UK airline, we are proud to employ thousands of people across the country, as well as in Europe, and have been delighted with the overwhelming response so far with more than 11,000 applicants for the 1,500 crew roles.”

Last week, easyJet confirmed it would be expanding its UK fleet with three more aircraft across its Bristol and Manchester bases for the summer 2022 season. The Manchester base will be larger than ever with 20 aircraft connecting the Nortregion to key cities and holidays destinations across Europe.
