The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) recently sponsored an airport-wide job fair at Boston Logan International Airport. With many airport businesses expressing an interest in participating, airport officials were hopeful that the turnout would be strong and that qualified candidates would be matched with potential employers. Exceeding expectations, nearly 1000 people attended the event from throughout the Boston Metropolitan area.
"Our goal with the job fair is to get people thinking about the various career opportunities and experiences offered by the aviation transportation industry," said Massport's Director of Aviation Edward C. Freni. "Companies at Logan employ nearly 11,000 people and generate about $19 million a day in direct economic impact to the region."
The job fair was an opportunity for Logan's airlines, airport retail and restaurant concessionaires, airline support and airport support businesses, hotels, rental car companies, and government agencies to showcase the career opportunities available at Boston Logan. Boston Logan serves as the gateway to the six-state New England region with a population of over 14 million and offers nonstop service to 79 domestic and 37 international destinations.
