After years of lay-offs and cutbacks, the Scandinavian airline SAS is looking for 500 new staff members – its largest recruitment of cabin personnel for 15 years.

The airline is also on a hiring spree when it comes to pilots. Some 200 new pilots will be hired, while 400 of its current pilots will receive a further education.

The airline’s increased production and four new long-distance aircraft have contributed to the need.

Job in the skies
So if you speak English well, have a clean criminal record, are 160-190 cm in height and can swim at least 200 metres, then you’re practically a shoe-in to become part of SAS’s new staff.

Some 300 of the staff will be based in Stockholm, and 100 each at the airports in Copenhagen and Oslo.
