European Airline announces plans to hire 200 Pilots in 2022
Eurowings is preparing for a strong travel season with backlog effects despite the current Omicron wave. Over the next twelve months, Germany’s largest leisure airline will fill around 750 new positions in the cockpits and cabins of its two AOCs, Eurowings Germany and Eurowings Europe. With this, Eurowings is systematically continuing the course it embarked on last year. During the most difficult crisis in air traffic, the airline successfully completed a comprehensive realignment, focusing more strongly on tourist destinations and the growing private travel business. As a result, the Lufthansa subsidiary was one of the very few airlines in Europe to hire staff again as early as 2021 – around 750 new crew members in the cockpit and cabin, including numerous employees from Lufthansa Group airlines who had lost their jobs. Now Eurowings is set to grow further, both nationally and internationally: in 2022, the airline will add around 550 additional flight attendants and 200 pilots at locations throughout Europe.
“We are pleased to be able to offer new colleagues a perspective at Eurowings again this year in order to continue our planned growth,” says Anja Draxler, Head of HR & Legal at Eurowings. “With more than 1,500 new hires within 24 months, we are investing in the future viability of Eurowings at a time when our industry is working its way out of the deepest crisis. At the same time, we are setting the course for a significant expansion of our flight program in the summer of 2022.”
