Airline Jet2 has announced plans to recruit 50 new cabin crew members at Belfast International Airport.

It's part of a massive drive to recruit 3,000 staff across Europe. The company said the roles will support its growth after what it described as "a bumper summer".

Jet2 is planning to increase its capacity from Belfast International Airport by another 7% next summer, with more than 450,000 seats on sale.

The company's chief executive, Steve Heapy, said: "This is our biggest ever recruitment drive at Belfast International, and once again demonstrates our commitment to investing in our customers and in people's careers.

Graham Keddie, managing director at Belfast International Airport, said: "Jet2 has very popular brands that are well established with Northern Ireland holidaymakers.

"The announcement of 50 new jobs at Belfast International Airport is a most welcome development and clearly demonstrates their commitment to the local market."
