Austrian Airlines is looking to hire 300 new flight attendants to be stationed in Vienna for the year 2018. The airline is forging new paths in the application process. Prospective candidates can choose whether they apply online at www.austrianairlines.ag or whether they would prefer to come directly to a live casting or personally audition for a job. The live castings will take place in Graz on November 17, 2017 and in Linz on November 18, 2017. The underlying reasons for Austrian Airline’s efforts to hire new employees are the expansion of its flight offering, both on its long-haul routes and in bilateral flight traffic to neighboring countries and ongoing staffing. This year Austrian Airlines already added 350 new flight attendants.

Requirements for candidates include a very high customer focus and service-mindedness, a very good command of German and English, a minimum age of 18, successful completion of their school or vocational school education and finally, fulfilment of military or civilian service obligations in the case of male applicants.

The annual gross salary is 21,462 euros plus overtime and expenses. From the thirteenth year of service, the base annual salary is around 30,000 euros plus overtime and expenses. Anyone who is interested will find detailed information about the vacant positions and how to register for the selection process at www.austrianirlines.ag.

In total, Austrian Airlines has a staff of around 6,700 employees, including about 2,600 flight attendants. Austrian Airlines is expected to increase the number to 2,800 flight attendants next year.
