New Delta Seattle Gateway And Delta Jobs

Delta is growing, and is making $1.6 billion in 2012. As a result they are expanding jobs and international gateways.

According to this Bloomberg article, Delta is looking for 300 great new flight attendants that could be flying as early as June. This number may flex up a bit to 400, but it won’t come close to the demand seen with 22,000 applicants for the flight attendant jobs. Given Delta’s expansion, they are looking for foreign language speakers including Japanese, Protuguese, Hindi, and Mandarin. I guess it is clear where the future expansion plans lay.

What also caught my eye in the article is that Delta is looking to make Seattle into a West Coast international gateway, something Cranky Flyer predicted over a year ago may happen. In addition, they will add 11 flights to Paris from U.S. cities next year.

This is all good news, except for the 21,700 applicants that are seeking a job with Delta but may not get one. Not sure who it says more about, the economy or Delta.

  1. I’m no fanboy for the airlines, much less Delta specifically, but I don’t see how there being 21,700 applicants who won’t be able to get one of the 300 announced positions reflects on Delta.

  2. @warmnuts – Second to Stephan’s comment. I moved to ATL for work in October, but have already been back to Seattle twice voluntarily.
