Singapore Airlines to hire cabin crew as aviation industry recovers

 Monday, February 14, 2022 


Singapore Airlines has resumed recruitment of cabin crew, ending a two-year hiring freeze after the coronavirus pandemic took its toll on air travel around the world.

The resumption of hiring for cabin crew came as travel to and from the city-state recovers and countries ease travel restrictions following an increase in vaccinations.

Singapore’s government has initiated vaccinated travel corridors with dozens of countries, helping the carrier’s group load factor to rise to 46.5 per cent in December from 13.7 per cent the previous year.

In September 2020, the company cut about 4,300 jobs, or 20 per cent of its workforce, as the coronavirus outbreak damaged the aviation industry.

The carrier has raised S$21.6 billion ($16bn) in additional liquidity since April 2020 to help cover expenses and survive the pandemic.
