Several U.S. airlines are reviewing candidates’ qualifications for various vacancies, which shows that these companies could significantly boost their profits in 2013.??
According to Bloomberg, US Airways is currently involved in its biggest hiring push since 2010. The firm received more than 16,500 applications for flight attendant positions and could substantially increase its workforce this year.??
“Young students are willing to try a lot of things and a flight attendant job is the epitome of a non-routine job,” Gary Chaison, professor of industrial relations at Clark University, told the news source.
Meanwhile, Delta also has a large applicant pool for flight attendant positions. The news source reports that Delta officials are evaluating the credentials of more than 22,000 applicants for vacancies with the airline.
However, some airlines are searching for flight attendants who possess certain skills. For example, US Airways recently began looking for flight attendants who could speak Hebrew or Portuguese, as these workers could prove valuable during international flights.??
With more flight attendants, airlines such as US Airways and Delta could enhance their operations and attract more flyers. Meanwhile, these companies may increase their profits and add more workers to their teams as the year progresses.??
