Wizz Air UK ‘raises pay’ to attract cabin crew

Wizz Air UK is raising pay by an unspecified amount as it seeks to attract more than 100 new cabin crew.

Annual minimum basic salary for a UK-based junior cabin attendant will start at £18,000, rising to £23,450, under the changes from April 1.

Those with ten months experience with the budget carrier will be paid between £20,480 and £26,480.

Senior cabin attendants will earn between £21,887 and £33,850.

The basic salary is paid to cabin crew during free initial training.

The budget carrier has crew roles available at its UK bases at Luton, Gatwick, Doncaster Sheffield and Cardiff airports.

The airline said: “Cabin crew members joining Wizz Air can expect free uniform, an unlimited number of discounted employee tickets, free tickets, fantastic discounts for friends and family, a monthly roster schedule, free meals while on duty, hotel accommodation and transport when working away from the home base.”

More than 10 recruitment events are being held across the country in March and April for aspiring cabin crew.

Wizz Air is also recruiting new pilots and is welcoming applications from experienced captains and first officers, as well as those with no flying experience.

UK managing director Marion Geoffroy said: “We are delighted to be offering an industry-leading remuneration package for our colleagues in the UK.

“We are thrilled that after over two years of challenging times, we are seeing a return to normality and we continue to offer even more job opportunities for all those who are looking for a really exciting and dynamic career.

 “We are committed to offering our cabin crew a clear career path and countless opportunities to develop.”
