Belfast City airport seeks to fill 40 vacancies

More than 40 staff are to be recruited by companies at George Best Belfast City airport in response to increasing travel demand.

Vacancies are available across the airport with partners including Swissport, Starbucks, WHSmith, the Artisan, MITIE and AV Flight.

The roles include ramp services agents, team leaders, kitchen team members, shop assistants and front of house.

Airport taxi partner, Value Cabs, also has roles available for both self-employed drivers and call centre agents.

The need for new staff comes airlines such as British Airways and Aer Lingus move to raise frequency on key routes.

BA has already announced increased frequency on its Exeter, Glasgow and Leeds-Bradford routes and introduced a new Birmingham service for the winter, while Aer Lingus has committed to more flights to Heathrow, Edinburgh, and Manchester.

EasyJet has also confirmed it will continue to operate its Gatwick route with flights on sale until February 2022.

Further announcements on increased frequencies of routes from airline partners at Belfast City airport are expected in the coming weeks.

Airport commercial manager Joanne Deighan said: “The removal of Northern Ireland travel traffic light system leaving just one single list of ‘red’ countries from October 4 as well as the announcement that the US will open up to fully vaccinated travellers from November is huge news for the aviation industry.

“And with over 88% of adults over 18 in Northern Ireland now fully vaccinated we are already seeing an uplift in demand for short getaways and business trips over the next few months.

“We have some great opportunities available on site through our partners that will suit a range of skills and abilities, and we are looking forward to expanding and strengthening the already great teams within this unique, exciting environment.”
