easyJet, Europe’s leading airline, 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.
easyJet, which flies more than 250 aircraft on over 820 routes in 31 countries, will offer its new cabin crew positions across all of its 27 European bases. Around half of these positions will be based in the UK.
New recruits will fly on a modern fleet of Airbus aircraft and will join the airline at an exciting time, as well as 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 350 pilots and providing career opportunities for more than 150 of its current First Officers to be promoted into Captain positions.
easyJet currently employs over 5,500 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 70million 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 today.
“Being cabin crew is a very rewarding role – our teams are extremely professional and energetic with a real sense of fun. easyJet is a fantastic company to work for with everyone across the airline working together as one team to ensure we provide the highest standard of service for our passengers.
“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.
