The news for US legacy carriers continues to worsen. Northwest and Delta recently filed bankruptcy while several others are teetering toward insolvency. Finding employment with one of these carriers is difficult, particularly if you are seeking a career as a flight attendant. Still, there are jobs with some air carriers, if you know where to look. Let’s take a look at some airlines that are likely to hire flight attendants over the next year or two.

The legacy carriers, which include American, Delta, Northwest, United, Continental, and USAirways, are probably not good places to look for stable employment. Earlier in 2005, Continental was hiring flight attendants, but the job market for the legacy carriers remains generally bleak. United remains in bankruptcy and USAirways recently exited bankruptcy and merged with America West Airlines.

On the other hand, the following discount, charter, and regional carriers have all hired flight attendants recently or are planning to do so over the next year:

* AirTran Airways

* Air Wisconsin Airlines

* Alaska Airlines/Horizon Airlines

* Champion Air

* Chautauqua Airlines

* Colgan Air

* Comair

* EOS Airlines

* Falcon Air Express

* Frontier Airlines

* Independence Airlines

* JetBlue Airways

* Maxjet Airlines

* Mesa Group

* Mesaba Airlines

* Miami Air

* North American Airlines

* Omni Air International

* Piedmont Airlines

* Shuttle America

* Skywest Airlines

* Southwest Airlines

* Spirit Airlines

* Transstates Airlines

* U. S. Airways

* USA3000 Airlines

* United Express

* Virgin America [awaiting FAA approval to fly]

* World Airways

Job fairs are a popular way for carriers to recruit, interview, and hire new employees. Check each company’s website for detailed information about upcoming dates or visit an aviation job board such as the Aviation Employment Board for the latest job postings. Hiring plans can change at any time, so make sure that the information you gather is verified directly by the air carrier.
