Flightcare Belgium is a ground handling company based on the Belgian National Airport in Zaventem. The company provides check-in, ticketing and boarding services as well as cargo, mail and courier handling. The company announced its intention to recruit 700 people for check-in and handling services. However, the company seems to meet some problems to recruit the right profiles. For now, 150 workers have been recruited but the company is still searching for 550 people. The company organised with the collaboration of the employment offices a job day in order to attract the right profile of workers.
