Ryanair to expand personnel as passenger numbers increase

Ryanair has confirmed it will create over 1,000 new jobs in 2012 for pilots, cabin crew, engineers and sales/marketing people, as it expands its fleet from 270 to 305 aircraft.

The new plans will be based across Europe.

Already in 2012, Ryanair has announced five new bases in Billund (Denmark), Wroclaw (Poland), Palma (Spain), Manchester (UK) and Paphos in Cyprus.

Ryanair expects its traffic to grow from 76 million passengers in 2011 to 80 million in 2012.

Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said: “Ryanair looks forward to another strong year of fleet and traffic growth in 2012 and we are proud to create over 1,000 new jobs in Europe for pilots, cabin crew, engineers and sales and marketing people, as Ryanair’s unmatched lowest fares, and no fuel surcharge guarantee continues to make Ryanair the world’s favourite airline.
