Norwegian Air to Recruit 270 Cabin Crew Members, Reopens Stockholm-Arlanda Base
In preparation for the summer 2022 season, Norwegian Air is recruiting 270 cabin crew members who will be based at Stockholm-Arlanda, which will reopen in April 2022. This will be the first time the carrier has Sweden-based personnel since before the pandemic.
On Wednesday (January 26, 2022), Norwegian Air announced the reopening of their Stockholm-Arlanda base from April 2022. In preparation for the summer 2022 season, the carrier will recruit 270 Arlanda-based cabin crew members, the first time the airline will have Sweden-based crewmembers since the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Norwegian has seen great interest in hiring cabin crew and has received over 1,500 applications. The new recruits will start work in March 2022 and begin flying in April 2022.
In Wednesday’s announcement, Norwegian Air’s CEO, Geir Karlsen, said,
We are very happy to now be back at Arlanda and can open our base for cabin crew. Despite the increasing spread of infection in recent months, we are positive about the coming summer season and have therefore built up our route network from Arlanda with 54 direct destinations ahead of the season. Arlanda is one of our most important airports, and with 270 new faces at Arlanda, it is with pleasure that we can state that Norwegian is now seriously back in Sweden again.
Over the past six months, Norwegian has opened bases in Copenhagen, Helsinki, Stavanger, Bergen and Trondheim. For January 2022, Norwegian will offer 15 destinations from Stockholm-Arlanda, including three domestic destinations (Umeå, Luleå and Kiruna).
