TAMPA — With spring break just around the corner, companies and government agencies that operate at Tampa International Airport have more than 1,500 jobs to fill and will hold a hiring fair on Feb. 15 at the airport.

According to a news release, Frontier Airlines alone needs to hire 1,000 flight attendants for crew bases around the country, while air services providers Global Aviation Services and Dnata look to fill positions for British Airways, Edelweiss, Air Canada and Cayman Airways.  

The Transportation Security Administration also has multiple positions to fill, the release states, and is prepared to make job offers on the spot to qualified candidates. Retail and restaurant tenants, ground-handling service providers and rental car agencies also have a range of full- and part-time jobs available.

"We’ve had great success with our past hiring events, and we're excited to continue growing our TIA family," states John Tiliacos, the airport’s executive vice president of operations and customer service, in the release. "Staffing up will help our business partners continue to meet growing demand and deliver the world-class service our passengers deserve." 

The hiring fair takes place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at TIA’s event space between airsides E and F on level three of the main terminal. Attendees can park for free in the terminal’s short-term parking garage.

Applicants should bring multiple copies of their resume along with photo identification.
