Frontier Airlines is holding events this week in Las Vegas to hire 300 attendants.

In a move to support continuing growth in the Las Vegas market, Frontier Airlines is looking to hire 300 flight attendants at a pair of events this week.

“As we continue to expand our presence in Las Vegas, it is necessary to recruit locally to fill our need for new flight attendants,” said Michael Pewther, senior director of inflight and onboard experience for Frontier Airlines. “Successful candidates will have a passion for customer service and travel and be ready to join our growing company.”

Both events will be held at Eastside Cannery, 5255 Boulder Highway, on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Check-in for Tuesday’s hiring event will begin at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday’s hiring event will feature two separate presentations, with check-in beginning at 7 a.m. for the first presentation and 12:30 p.m the second presentation.

After initial presentations, the interview process will begin and job offers will be made on the spot, Frontier officials said.

Candidates, who must be at least 20 years old, should be prepared to be interviewed and bring a current résumé and passport.

The job offers travel perks, medical and vision insurance, 401(k) benefits, paid holidays, vacation and sick leave.

Frontier has been the fastest-growing airline in Las Vegas over the last year, according to McCarran International Airport.

In August 2013, Frontier operated 35 flights per week to only one destination (Denver). In August of this year, the airline operated 155 weekly departures from McCarran to 24 destinations.

“Frontier has been a great airline partner for Las Vegas, and we’re excited to see their commitment expand to include economic development and job creation,” said Brig Lawson, senior director of business partnerships for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.

“The LVCVA is proud to work with McCarran to continue attracting new air service to the destination and grow our record-breaking visitation,” Lawson said. “We’re also proud to work with our airline partners to help grow our economy.”
