Lufthansa has begun the process of recruitment ahead of the launch of it’s next subsidiary, City Airlines.
It is understood that the carrier is looking to recruit around 200 crew for 2024 launch, with what they advertise as “attractive salaries and working conditions”.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Lufthansa Begins Recruitment for City Airlines…
For those that are wanting to switch within the Lufthansa Group, offers can be negotiated based on voluntary transfer conditions, especially for CityLine employees as well.
Commenting on this next step was Jens Fehlinger, the Chief Operating Officer of City Airlines:
“We are getting started and creating prospects for new and experienced colleagues with attractive working conditions in Germany”.
“Our guests on board can look forward to a dedicated team and a flight experience with the well-known Lufthansa quality on their flights with City Airlines.”
Operations are expected to begin in Summer 2024, using the Airbus A319 to begin with. There is careful consideration at the moment for the airline to take on Airbus A220s or Embraer aircraft in the future, as confirmed in their press release.
In the statement also, the carrier said the following on the new subsidiary opening up:
“As a provider of short and medium-haul routes from the Munich and Frankfurt hubs, City Airlines will also operate feeder flights for Lufthansa.”
“This addition is essential for the Lufthansa Group’s market position and the planned growth of the long-haul business in the German market.”
All eyes will be on the carrier to see how operations go when they launch in Summer 2024!
