After its biggest ever programme of flights and holidays this summer, the company will increase capacity at Manchester by more than 10% in Summer ‘19, with over 2.8 million seats on sale.

To support this growth and to continue its track record of delivering award-winning customer service, the company is looking to recruit passionate and talented individuals to fill over 250 Cabin Crew and more than 250 Ground Operations positions at Manchester Airport, in addition to vacancies in Flight Deck roles.
