Ryanair in Portugal to hire flight attendants

Irish low-cost airline Ryanair is returning to Portugal this month to hire more flight attendants, with two Open Day initiatives scheduled for May 13 (Lisbon) and May 16 (Porto).

In a statement, the airline, which frequently recruits workers in Portugal, said it must hire more staff due to “the constant increase in routes, services and passengers”.

Applicants must be over 18 years of age and can sign up for recruitment events online at www.crewlink.ie, where they will be asked to fill in a small form with questions such as “Are you between 5’2 (1.57m) and 6’2 (1.88m)”, “Are you friendly and outgoing with a lively personality” and “Do you have (or can you apply for) an EU passport”.

Job seekers must also be fluent in English and have completed secondary school.

Those hired can expect a three-year contract after training, as well as monthly salaries starting at €1,000.
