Bournemouth Airport is launching a recruitment drive to attract new staff as it gears up for a bumper summer season.

The airport is expecting to handle more passengers this year following last month’s announcement by Ryanair that it will base a second aircraft at the airport this summer.

The low cost airline will offer 30 per cent more flights to 18 destinations, including new routes to Venice, Edinburgh and Carcassonne.

Bournemouth Airport, which currently employs around 250 people, held a recruitment open day on January 24.

The main focus was on recruiting passenger services and security staff but there were also vacancies for other roles including arrivals staff, ground handling staff and cleaners.

Steve Gill, pictured left, Bournemouth Airport’s Managing Director, said: “With Ryanair launching their biggest ever season from Bournemouth this year, and with a total of 29 destinations on offer in 15 countries in our 2023 schedule, we’re expecting a bumper season.

“Our employees are at the heart of our business and we want to recruit great people who can deliver the high levels of customer service for which Bournemouth Airport is renowned.”

Jobs featured during the recruitment open day included passenger services and security.
