22 new flight attendants, drawn from over 800 applicants, will provide much needed reinforcement to the Icelandic airline’s summer timetable.
Icelandic low cost airline, Iceland Express, recently celebrated the graduation of 22 new flight attendants who have been studying on the company’s own training programme.
Icelandic newspaper Vidskiptabladid reports that the new recruits will start work in mid-May, coinciding with the start of Iceland Express’ summer schedule.
The 22 coveted places in the company are being filled by the successful few among the 800 people who applied for the course last winter.
The Iceland Express flight attendant training course has never attracted as many applications as it did this year – a sign of the airline’s increasing popularity and reputation as a good employer.
Included in this year’s training were sessions with the police on how to identify and prevent trouble onboard aircraft from violent or dangerous passengers.
The group of bright young graduates consists of three men and nineteen women.
