In what is a sign of rising air travel demand, Singapore Airlines (SIA) has begun recruiting cabin crew again following a two-year hiring freeze due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The airline said the hiring move is a response to meet new manpower requirements as international air travel demand builds up amid the launch of more vaccinated travel lanes. It ​has been gradually boosting its capacity and adjusting its passenger services in line with the increased demand.

SIA said most of its pilots and cabin crew have returned to active duty.

SIA is now accepting applications through its website, and it is also inviting former cabin crew keen to rejoin the company to apply.

The SIA Group, which includes SIA, SilkAir and Scoot, had cut 3,400 positions across the three airlines in September 2020. It instituted a hiring freeze since February 2020 while offering cabin crew early release or retirement in an attempt to cut costs during the pandemic.
