The low-cost Irish carrier has announced that it will hire up to 1,000 cabin crew at its several new European units, including Croatia and Sweden. New bases are to be launched for the 2021 winter season. Through its agent Crewlink, the airline is recruiting candidates via online interviews across Europe. Ryanair reveals that it doubled its weekly seat capacity for European routes to 1.3 million passengers in early June 2021, aiming for 4 million passengers and up to 7-9 million by July 2021.

Ryanair is an Irish low cost airline founded in 1984. Ryanair's route network serves 40 countries in Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East.

A previous restructuring programme was announced in May 2020 (3,250 jobs cut).
