Low-cost airline Norwegian said it will create more than 130 crew and pilot jobs in Scotland as it prepares for continued growth at Edinburgh Airport in 2017.
Norwegian is planning new routes from Edinburgh including low-cost transatlantic flights to the US east coast that are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
Norwegian’s chief commercial officer Thomas Ramdahl said: “Edinburgh is a central part of our UK growth plans and together with new aircraft and new flights, we are also creating new jobs in Scotland.
“We are looking for talented crew and pilots to join us in delivering our ambitious growth plans at Edinburgh Airport.
“As an award-winning airline, with new aircraft and global expansion plans, this is a great opportunity for people to join us as we head into our busiest ever year.
“More jobs in the air will help also create more jobs on the ground and Norwegian’s plans for new flights into Edinburgh will help support tourism, business and hospitality opportunities in the UK’s second most visited city.
“We look forward to unveiling more about our Edinburgh expansion plans in the coming weeks.”
