As the world’s largest airline increases its flights to and from Athens International Airport, so too, must it increase its Greek-speaking workforce to accommodate more Greek speakers flying its airplanes.
American Airlines is currently advertising open positions for flight attendants willing to be based in either Boston, MA; Charlotte, NC; Chicago, IL; Dallas/Ft Worth, TX; Los Angeles, CA; Miami, FL; New York, NY; Philadelphia, PA; Phoenix, AZ; Raleigh/Durham, NC; San Francisco, CA; St Louis, MO or Washington, DC.
American currently flies daily non-stops from Philadelphia to Athens and effective May, will be adding daily seasonal service from Chicago to Athens.
The position requires fluency in Greek, as well as several other requirements which are listed in the job posting on the airline’s website.
The move to hire more Greek-speakers comes as both United Airlines and Delta have also increased their Greek-speaking workforce to accommodate native Greek-speaking customers traveling to and from Athens, from various U.S. cities.
