Deutsche Lufthansa AG will once again hire more than 3000 new staff this year. It is mostly flight attendants who will join the various airlines of the Lufthansa Group in 2017. Lufthansa, Germany’s biggest airline, will hire 1400 flight attendants at the hubs in Frankfurt and Munich alone; overall the Lufthansa Group airlines will hire more than 2200 new staff.

Last year, in addition to the conventional application processes, Lufthansa also held six flight attendant castings in Heidelberg, Mainz, Augsburg, Regensburg, Munich and Berlin, which was met with great interest among the target group. More than 2000 applicants went to the castings, and almost 6000 attended the regular application days in Frankfurt. Almost one in every three applicants was accepted.

Sandra Albrecht, for example. “I have always wanted to work at Lufthansa”, says the Frankfurt based woman, who, in the summer, successfully completed the Lufthansa flight attendant casting in Mainz. “It has always been my dream to be a flight attendant. I couldn’t believe my luck at first”, she says, happily. For Sandra Albrecht, the dream of flying is within her grasp.

Other divisions are also hiring. Lufthansa Technik, for example, is planning to recruit 450 new staff at different locations, and Austrian Airlines is hiring more than 300 new, cabin, check-in and cockpit staff, and other divisions are also looking. With 37,000 employees, Lufthansa is the largest employer in Frankfurt and Hesse.

For the aviation group, training young people is of particular importance. 250 new candidates will start an apprenticeship or a degree in the Lufthansa Group in 2016/17. And there is a lot to choose from: there are nine degree courses and 34 training programmes, including toolmaker, air traffic assistant, system catering professional and forwarding and logistics services expert.

“Lufthansa remains the most attractive employer in Germany and the employer of choice for many applicants. Last year, more than 100,000 applications were submitted to the career portal at www.be-lufthansa.com. This makes us very proud. We are pleased to hire more than 3000 staff again this year”, says Carsten Spohr, chairman of the board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG.
