Flight Attendant Jobs – Open House Interviews
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, most airlines are now suspending hiring and/or furloughing crew members. Although many of the furloughs began on October 1st, management at some airlines announced that furloughed employees could be recalled if the government extends financial relief for airlines until May, 2021. Voting on the relief bill is scheduled to take place soon.
AirlineCareer.com has been providing flight attendant hiring information to our website visitors and email subscribers since 1998. We have continued to disseminate information pertaining to cyclical airline hiring through good times and bad. We weathered airline downturns and airline bankruptcies and the complete commercial airline shutdown after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. During these difficult times, we have continued advising our readership about the furloughs, airline shutdowns and the eventual strong rebound in the years that followed.
We receive emails every day asking if we have any updates on when airlines will hire again. Although we don’t have the answer to that question, we do know that airlines will eventually recover and hiring will resume where it left off. When the doors do reopen, we feel it is important for our readership to be aware of when that will happen. This is the reason we are continuing our updates, although they will not be as frequent as in the past. The COVID-19 pandemic is a crisis that we are all sharing together. We will overcome it and there will be life after it is over.
Although there is currently no hiring, we feel that now is the perfect opportunity to prepare yourself any way you can before hiring resumes. The AirlineCareer.com website offers many of the resources available to prepare for future hiring, including a resume builder, blog articles on a variety of topics relating to a flight attendant career, free interactive testing to prepare you for new-hire training and flight attendant career books that will help you ace your flight attendant interview.
We will post updates as we receive them. Please check the individual airline websites for the latest hiring information. This flight attendant jobs update is posted frequently, so be sure to visit the AirlineCareer.com Blog often! And please don’t forget to pass this free update along to your friends by clicking on the share buttons.
