EasyJet offers the cabin crew a bonus of £ 1,000 if it fights for the recruitment and maintenance of valuable staff
EasyJet offers the cabin crew a bonus of £ 1,000 if it fights for the recruitment and maintenance of valuable staff.
The bonus will be available to all new and existing crews who will be paid in October as a reward for their efforts during this summer’s travel boom.
This is in line with British Airways ’golden handshake for £ 1,000 for trained staff joining in from competing carriers. Unlike the BA offer, the easyJet award will also be paid to its current crew.
Mood: EasyJet hopes to recruit and maintain an existing crew with a bonus
The budget airline has set up a serious recruitment on board staff. It is clear that recently it has increased the target number of employment from 1,500 to 1,700 people.
Airlines fired staff when Covid was injured. But now they are fighting for the recruitment and maintenance of the crew after a sudden surge in demand for flights of Britons who are desperate to leave.
Both easyJet and BA recently canceled thousands of flights between them due to staff shortages.
An easyJet spokesman said the firm “will pay its flight attendants a recognition payment at the end of the summer season to recognize their contribution to the operation this summer, which is expected to return to near 2019 for the first time since the pandemic.”
Last week easyJet announced it was removing seats from part of its fleet so it could fly with three crew members instead of four.
