Alaska airline to add 3,000 jobs in 2019

Published on : Tuesday, January 15, 2019

Alaska Air Group says it plans to add more than 3,000 jobs this year, with three-fourths of the positions opening in Washington.

 

 

The Seattle Times reported the Seattle-based airline group said the new jobs will include maintenance technicians, airport operations, customer service, cargo specialists, flight attendants and pilots.

 

 

The company said most of the openings will not require previous airline experience.

 

 

A study commissioned by the airline found that employment at Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air grew by about 35 percent at the Seattle hub between 2013 and 2017.

 

 

 

The company says it recently hired its 10,000th employee in Washington. The company employed about 8,500 people in California, Oregon and Alaska in 2017, with a total nationwide workforce of 21,300.
