Career Opportunities Available in the Aviation Industry
The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) today announced an airport-wide job fair at Boston Logan International Airport on Wednesday, June 27, 2007 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the United Airlines Hangar.
Hosted by Massport, the job fair is 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.
With many airport businesses expressing an interest in the job fair, airport officials are hopeful that the turnout will be strong and that qualified candidates will be matched with potential employers.
"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 will take place at the United Airlines Hangar located at 10 Service Road, Logan International Airport, East Boston, across the street from the MBTA Blue Line Airport Station. Attendees are encouraged to make use of public transportation. Attendees driving to job fair can park at the airport's economy parking lot and should take Route 1A north to the Bennington Street/Route 145 exit and follow the signs to event parking.
