Delta hiring 1,000 flight attendants

Delta Air Lines plans to hire another 1,000 flight attendants this year.

The airline is hiring the crew members for its 2020 class of new flight attendants, who will go through six weeks of training. Atlanta-based Delta has about 25,000 flight attendants.

Applicants must have a high school degree or GED, fluent in English and at least 21 years old by Jan. 1, 2020.

The company is also looking for bilingual flight attendants who can speak English as well as Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, Greek, German, Italian, Japanese or Korean.

The ideal candidates have at least a year of work experience in “personalized customer service, patient care or similar role” and experience “ensuring the safety and/or care of others,” as well as a degree beyond high school, according to Delta.
