Low-cost airline Ryanair will create 1,000 jobs in 2012 after confirming plans to grow its aircraft fleet from 270 to 305. 18/01/2012
Positions will be made available for pilots, cabin crew, engineers and in sales and marketing, with jobs available throughout Europe, including at its new base in Manchester.
Other hubs will be created at Billund in Denmark, Wroclaw in Poland, Paphos in Cyprus and Palma in Spain.
‘Ryanair looks forward to another strong year of fleet and traffic growth in 2012 and we are proud to create over 1,000 new jobs in Europe,’ said Ryanair’s head of communications, Stephen McNamara.
The news comes as a further boost to transport and logistics graduates after Luton Airport released plans to add a further 6,000 jobs in an attempt to increase its passenger numbers by building an extra runway.
The airport is hoping to allow an extra seven million customers to travel through Luton after claims of a shortage of air travel options in the South East.
‘The benefits of that will flow from the airport’s development will be realised in the local, regional and national economies,’ said London Luton Airport Limited (LLAL) chair Robin Harris.
Pilots, cabin crew, engineers and salespeople interested in applying for roles with Ryanair can get further details on Ryanair’s website.
