Lufthansa will be hiring around 2,500 flight attendants alone at its hubs in Frankfurt and Munich; overall, the Lufthansa Group airlines will employ more than 4,000 new recruits.

Last year, besides its conventional application processes, Lufthansa carried out 11 "flight attendant castings", which aroused great interest among the target group.

Over 4,500 candidates have so far attended the various auditions and nearly 6,000 the regular applicants' days in Frankfurt. Almost every third applicant received a job offer.

However, employees are also being hired in other areas of the Group. Around 500 new hires are, for example, being planned for Lufthansa Technik at various locations.

Austrian Airlines is also hiring a total of more than 500 new recruits, including flight attendants for the check-in and the cockpit, among others, and is also looking for employees in other business areas.

With 38,000 employees, Lufthansa is the largest employer in Frankfurt and the federal state of Hesse.

The training of young people has special significance for the aviation group. In the 2017/18 training year, 250 new recruits will begin training or studying in the Lufthansa Group across Germany.

And the choice is huge: A total of ten study programs and 30 apprenticeships – such as tool mechanic, systems catering, forwarding agent and logistics services – are available.

Detailed information on entry opportunities in the Lufthansa Group and requirements can be found at Besides the "flight attendant castings", applications can only be submitted via the career portal.
