Finnair looks for 400 pilots and cabin crew

Airline launches biggest recruitment drive in its history
Finnair is preparing for growth in its long-haul traffic starting in 2016 and has launched the biggest recruitment drive in its history.
In addition to the 70 pilots and 130 cabin crew already recruited this year, Finnair is seeking to recruit 100 new pilots and 300 new cabin crew members. Around 50 people are also being hired for customer service tasks.
In October, the Finnish carrier took delivery of its first A350 XWB aircraft and altogether 19 have been ordered. The new widebody aircraft are the engine of Finnair’s growth and add capacity to its long-haul traffic from spring 2016 onwards.
The need for personnel means that 1000 new people will be hired by 2020.
