Brussels Airlines and TUI fly to recruite more than 700 new crew

Brussels Airlines and its Belgian rival TUI fly are looking to recruit more than 700 people this year. Both airlines are mainly looking for stewards and flight attendants, but TUI fly is also looking for 15 future pilots, for example, while about 40 are needed at Brussels Airlines.

Brussels Airlines, which had to lay off around 1 000 employees during the Covid-19 period, plans to recruit at least 380 new employees this year. Although the recruitment campaign for cabin crew, i.e., stewards and stewardesses, has already ended, Brussels Airlines also has some 40 vacancies for pilots, 60 vacancies in the ‘Maintenance & Engineering’ department, primarily technicians, and is also looking for many people for passenger guidance at the airport (check-in, boarding…).

Lufthansa Group, Brussels Airlines’ parent company, has already announced that it will recruit 13 000 staff, 380 of whom will work for Brussels Airlines.

Students wanted at TUI fly

TUI fly, in turn, is looking for 318 new employees, including 246 stewards and flight attendants. They will mainly fly from Brussels Airport. In addition, there are more than 70 vacancies for students.

TUI Fly also launched its pilot academy in 2017 and is recruiting 15 students for pilot training. They will receive a one-and-half-year program to become co-pilots. For those interested, there are open days in Zaventem on February 7th and March 23rd. Registration in advance via TUI’s job site is mandatory. According to TUI, training with them is up to half cheaper than with other flight schools.

In addition to airline vacancies, TUI Belgium, part of TUI Group, the world’s leading tour operator, is hiring 27 travel agents for its network of over 100 travel agencies.
