In preparation for the expected traffic increase, Budapest Airport has begun recruiting manpower to be able to provide for the safe operation of the airport with an appropriate number of colleagues, as moderate traffic returns, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The airport says that 114 employees have arrived in the open positions recently; 75 of them are returning colleagues whom we had to let go last year during the headcount reduction brought about by the pandemic.
Staff are primarily being hired for roles indispensable for the safe handling of passenger traffic and the operation of the airport; mostly security screeners and the terminal operation and information teams. In addition, there will be more employees working in IT, and since Budapest Airport will maintain epidemiological measures going forward, the sanitization team from emergency response has also been expanded.
Recruitment is still underway; more than 70 more colleagues will join the BUD group soon. Based on the airport's current traffic forecast, the operator expects that in the short term, approximately 170 staff will be hired in total, following the headcount reduction last year.
