Qantas is to hire 900 new long haul flight attendants by the end of 2008 in the first phase of its largest ever cabin crew recruitment drive.

The airline will continue to build its fulltime flight attendant numbers through to 2010 to cater for the airlines growth.

By the end of 2010, we will have around 2,000 new flight attendants flying on our international fleet of A380, B747 and A330 aircraft, Chief Executive Officer of Qantas, Mr Geoff Dixon said.

The new jobs are the direct result of the landmark EBA agreement reached with the Flight Attendants Association of Australia (FAAA) International Division last year.

The competitive terms and conditions negotiated under the EBA have enabled us to create these new positions, said Mr Dixon.

The new flight attendants will be based in Sydney and Melbourne, where they would undergo six weeks initial training in superior customer service and hospitality skills, security, medical and emergency procedures, and product knowledge.
