This year the Lufthansa Group will hire more than 4,500 new employees in Germany, Austria and Switzerland with 3,000 hires taking place in Germany. This involves both re-placement appointments due to fluctuation and, in some cases, job increases.
The focus of the recruitment planned in the DACH countries is “on the ground” with around 2,500 positions. Almost 1,300 new flight attendants are to be hired across the Lufthansa Group.
Around 1,000 new employees are slated to be hired at the core brand Lufthansa in 2020 while 450 prospective flight attendants alone will begin their training at the Munich location.
In addition, 40 flying colleagues will be joining Lufthansa CityLine at the Bavarian hub. The Lufthansa subsidiary in Munich plans to employ approximately as many administrative staff.
Furthermore, around 100 recruitments in administration are planned at Lufthansa, along with around 300 in ground operations. The crane airline is also looking for candidates in the area of IT and for other expert positions this year.
