More than 11,000 people have applied for 1,100 cabin crew positions that easyJet needs to fill in preparation for what is projected to be a very busy summer vacation travel season in 2022.

Between March and October 2022, the Luton-based airline said it will require more cabin personnel on temporary seasonal contracts.

During the normally quieter winter months, EasyJet is anticipated to see a major drop in demand. This year, however, will be more difficult than usual due to a recurrence of COVID-19 infections in Europe, which has resulted in increased lockdowns and travel restrictions.

Travel demand is expected to rebound in Spring 2022 when fully immunized vacationers will be able to travel abroad.

“With the recovery underway, we are ready and able to seize opportunities and our seasonal crew is integral to this,” commented easyJet chief executive Johan Lundgren on Tuesday.

Lundgren said the reception to the recruitment campaign so far has been “delightful.” The hiring process will continue in the coming months, with successful candidates scheduled to begin training early next year.

“We look forward to bringing these crew on board with us for summer, so we can offer the greatest choice and best value across our unrivaled European network, for leisure and business customers alike,” Lundgren continued.

Lundgren also announced that easyJet was resuming its popular cadet pilot program, with up to 150 cadets expected to begin training between January and April 2022.

The first group was supposed to join the airline before the epidemic, but they were only recently allowed back as the recovery process progressed.
