Breeze Airways is hiring for positions at Provo Airport | News, Sports, Jobs
When Breeze Airways announced it was making Provo airport its home base in Utah, it also meant the company would have to hire for services as well.
Although pilots are already hired, other personnel are needed to ensure the movement of aircraft and passengers.
To meet this need, Breeze Airways will host a recruiting event for its Provo airport base from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday at Hyatt Place Salt Lake City/Cottonwood Heights, 3090 E. 6200 South in Salt Lake City. Walk-ins are welcome.
Breeze is looking to hire approximately 50 people. Slots for air hostesses have been filled; however, aircraft maintenance engineers and equipment specialists are still needed. With its Utah base in Provo, the airline plans to hire 200 Utah-based team members while continuing to add jobs in a range of positions, including finance, operations, marketing and human resources, at Breeze headquarters in Salt Lake City, according to a company press release.
Breeze, the self-proclaimed “seriously nice” airline, has announced that it will begin home-based operations with four planes tethered to Provo airport.
The first roads out of Provo will be:
- San Francisco, CA (daily nonstop, beginning August 4).
- San Bernardino, CA (one stop daily/no plane changes, starting August 4).
- Las Vegas, Nevada (daily nonstop, beginning October 5).
- New York/Westchester (one stop daily/no plane changes, starting October 5).
- Los Angeles, CA (daily nonstop, beginning November 2).
“I pay tribute to Mayor (Michelle) Kaufusi and his leadership,” said David Neeleman, Founder and CEO of Breeze. “She said if you build it, they’ll come.”
Neeleman noted that Provo is convenient due to its proximity to Silicon Slopes, Brigham Young University, Utah Valley University, businesses and the general public.
Provo employees will be required to live within 50 miles of the Provo airport.
