UK Airline is Recruiting Empty Nesters to Solve Cabin Crew Shortages

To combat post-pandemic staff issues that have contributed to industry-wide flight delays, cancellations and long airport queues, British carrier EasyJet has launched a recruitment drive urging people over the age of 45 to join its cabin crews.

The new campaign targets “empty nesters” – parents whose children have left home – and workers looking for a new career later in life. It comes on the heels of research by the airline that showed more than 78 per cent of UK adults over 45 said they would like a new challenge once their children had left home.

The Guardian reports that EasyJet’s research also showed a 27 per cent increase in crew aged 45 and over in the past four years - and a whopping 30 per cent increase in over-60s in just the past year.
