easyJet, the UK’s largest airline, this week celebrates 15 years of operation from Liverpool John Lennon Airport by welcoming 17 new cabin crew.
easyJet opened a permanent base at Liverpool John Lennon Airport in June 1999 and has since flown almost 15 million passengers from the airport. The latest recruits to join Liverpool will work across 30 routes including Newquay and Menorca which return for the summer season.
Liverpool was one of its first UK bases and today employs over 240 staff, with seven aircraft permanently based at the airport. The new cabin crew have recently completed three weeks of full time training at easyJet’s academy covering all elements of the flying experience from customer service and first aid to safety requirements and food service.
Robin Tudor, Head of PR at Liverpool John Lennon Airport said: “It’s a well-known fact that airlines based at airports create jobs. easyJet’s base here at Liverpool has continued to provide career opportunities across the region over the past 15 years and we are delighted to see these latest new recruits flying with easyJet from their local airport.”
