Following the entry into service of its first state-of-the-art Embraer E190-E2 aircraft, Swiss regional airline Helvetic Airways is seeking to expand its cabin and cockpit crew corps.

The company aims to recruit around 100 new employees at its main Zurich Airport operating site between now and summer 2020. Over 70 new positions will be created in the cabin crew corps; and some 30 new pilots a year should be trained for service on the airline’s Embraer E190 jets. The basic flight attendant training courses will be held in February, March, April and May, and the corresponding selection process is already under way. Helvetic Airways offers a range of innovative working models which are designed to also appeal to students, people returning to the workforce and those seeking a change of career.

The Helvetic Airways fleet currently comprises 13 aircraft: eleven Embraer E190-E1s and two Embraer E190-E2s. Deliveries of the new E190-E2s will further accelerate in the first and second quarters of 2020; and by 2021 the Swiss regional airline will operate Europe’s most advanced and ecofriendly aircraft fleet.
