Tripoli, 21 June 2103:
As part of its post-revolution expansion plans, Libyan Airlines has announced that it wants to take . . .[restrict]on more cabin staff, both Libyan and foreign.
Specifically, it is looking to employ more air-hostesses. These, it says, must be able to speak fluent English (with preference given to those who have other foreign languages), must be between 18 and 30, unmarried, and comply with a number of other conditions.
The announcement comes just days after the airline resumed flights after a damaging two-day strike by existing cabin crews over pay and working conditions. The strike ended when the airline agreed to address the strikers’ demands.
As part of its expansion, the airline is also due to take delivery of two new Airbus 330s next week. They will be flown to Tripoli either on Thursday or Saturday. At the end of last year, the airline took delivery of two Airbus 320s.
The new air-hostesses are believed to be for it planned return to European destinations.
