Low-cost airline Ryanair is to recruit 200 new cabin crew roles between now and summer 2023. Recruitment will begin immediately with a recruitment event to take place at Ryanair’s Engineering Building at Airside Business Park, Swords on 25 January 2023. According to the company, the recruitment event will highlight a range of benefits for cabin crew staff - which include a 5 days on, 3 days off roster, excellent remuneration package including a joining bonus, career progression opportunities and discounted travel. Ryanair forecasts a summer rush of air travel due to pent-up demand from passengers who put their travel plans on hold during the pandemic.
