AirAsia to recruit new cabin crew members

Low-cost airline AirAsia Philippines will be recruiting new cabin crew members on Oct. 11 to augment its workforce and meet the demands of domestic and international travel in 2024.

The recruitment program will be conducted at the third floor of the MIAA Function Hall of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3.

The applicants who will be hired will join AirAsia’s operations in 14 domestic and 13 international destinations in its hubs in Manila and Cebu, as well as Clark and Kalibo when they reopen.  

Aside from cabin crew personnel, the airline company is also actively recruiting additional Guest Service and Ramp agents.

AirAsia said it has around 600 new staff who will be supporting its additional aircraft and reactivation hubs in 2024.

“The horizon is very clear in terms of our growth direction. Our additional manpower will compensate for the expected increase in fleet size next year. Also, the sustained momentum in forward bookings continues to flourish, surpassing our 2019 figures,” said AirAsia Philippines CEO Ricky Isla.  

“Our guests can be assured of seamless travels during the Ber months with our group On-Time Performance hitting a high of 90% over the weekend,” added Isla.

To cater to the increased workforce, Capital A, AirAsia Philippines’ parent company has accepted a five-year loan facility worth $150 million for “aircraft and engine maintenance costs and other capital requirements of the AirAsia Group.”

“As a group, we are the largest Asean carrier in terms of fleet size. We also fly to 165 destinations in 25 countries worldwide. With the strong backing of our parent company Capital A, we are bullish that we will be on the right path to market domination in 2024,” he said.
