EasyJet has announced that it is to recruit more than 1,200 new permanent and fixed term cabin crew positions as the airline continues its growth.

This is the largest cabin crew intake in easyJet’s 21 year history, with more than half expected to be based at London Gatwick – an 82% increase on last year.

EasyJet flies more than 270 aircraft on over 880 routes in 31 countries and will offer its new cabin crew positions across almost all of its 28 European bases. New recruits will fly on a modern fleet of Airbus aircraft, including the newest A320neo and will have access to a number of rewards, high quality training and opportunities for career development.

The news comes after easyJet’s announcement earlier this year that it was opening recruitment for more than 450 pilots and providing career opportunities for its current First Officers to be promoted into Captain positions.

EasyJet currently employs over 6,900 cabin crew who are at the forefront of the airline’s operations, ensuring the highest safety standards are met and providing friendly service for easyJet’s 70 million passengers every year.

Tina Milton, easyJet’s Head of Cabin Service, said: “We’re delighted to be opening recruitment for more than 1,200 cabin crew positions.

“Being cabin crew is a very rewarding role – our teams are extremely professional and energetic with a real sense of fun. We’re looking forward to welcoming more people into our growing team.”

New recruits will complete a series of online pre-coursework tasks, and will then undertake three weeks of thorough practical demonstrations in areas such as safety procedures, aviation security and first aid.

EasyJet’s onboard team includes three Flight Attendants and a Cabin Manager, who work closely with the Captain and First Officer.
