The first of eight new aircrafts, at a price of a €144 million, have already begun operations as part of the airline’s ‘new beginning’ strategy.
The 50 new jobs will cover a range of areas, including flight and cabin crew, engineering and support roles and will bring the company’s overall staff numbers to 370.
