Hiring Boom for Flight Attendants in Canada Despite Air Travel’s Troubled Times

Despite reports of in-flight confrontations with passengers who are frustrated with flight delays, cancellations, lost baggage, and even mask mandates, those working in the flight attendant industry say the job still has an allure and there’s still a lot of interest in it, reports the CBC.

On the weekend of 23JUL, Emirates held a cabin crew open day in Toronto to attract new employees. Wesley Lesosky, president of the component of CUPE that represents Air Canada and Air Canada Rouge flight attendants, said Air Canada has seen “incredible growth” in hiring despite new difficulties in being a flight attendant. Christina Ling, who runs a training school called the Flight Attendant Institute, says despite the challenges in the air industry right now, “there is no shortage of people that still want to pursue this career.”
