Cebu Pacific reopens hiring of cabin crew as tourism recovers

Cebu Pacific Air on Saturday announced it is reopening the hiring for cabin crew as it prepares for increase in travel demand and the recovery of the tourism sector.

In a statement, the company said it has been ramping up its network, providing an opportunity for the airline to hire additional cabin crew as domestic travel restrictions continue to ease and more destinations reopen.

The airline said it has reached out and encouraged its former cabin crew to apply as the airline gets ready for recovery.

“We know the year 2020 has been one of the most challenging years for everyJuan. As we continue being cautiously optimistic and prepare to paint the skies yellow again, we are pleased to reopen the hiring of additional cabin crew,” said Felix Lopez, vice president for People & Admin at Cebu Pacific.

Recent developments in the nation’s COVID-19 response have paved the way for greater recovery in the travel and aviation sectors, according to the airline.

It said that the steadily rising number of fully-vaccinated Filipinos and the encouraging downward trend of new COVID cases have led to the much-anticipated easing of quarantine restrictions across many parts of the country.

“This in turn has brought about an uptick in travel demand and opened opportunities for us to hire additional cabin crew to support CEB’s recovery and growth,” said Lopez.

Cebu Pacific said it has attained 100% vaccination rate for its active flying crew through its very own employee vaccination program, JG Summit COVID Protect, and various partnerships with local government units in the country.

The airline operates the widest domestic network in the Philippines covering 33 destinations, on top of its 10 international destinations.

It ended the third quarter with a 73-strong fleet, one of the youngest in the world, which includes two dedicated ATR freighters and one A330 freighter. —Ted Cordero/LBG, GMA News
