SUVA, Fiji – Fiji’s national airline, Fiji Airways, has commenced its recruitment drive for 45 new flight attendants to add to its 250-strong cabin crew.
The recruitment is in line with the airline’s upcoming fleet expansion, as a result of its five-year master plan announced in January this year.
Fiji Airways managing director and CEO Stefan Pichler says the growth in cabin crew numbers was needed since they had new aircraft joining their fleet next year which meant increased flights.
The 45 new recruits will be selected to undergo an intensive three-month training and qualification program to join Fiji Airways’ cabin crew ranks.
“It’s always exciting for us to be able to grow and increase job opportunities for Fijians, particularly in the area of cabin crew.
“They are a crucial link in our efforts to become the world’s leading boutique airline, through delivery of excellent customer service and focus on safety.”
With its recently launched brand promise of “Welcome to Our Home”, Mr Pichler said they needed new recruits to mirror the work of their existing cabin crew.
“Our goal is to make guests feel like members of the extended Fiji Airways family, an attitude symbolic of Fiji and its people.
