(June 21, 2022 at 9am)

QUEENS, NY – Queens Borough President Donovan Richards Jr. and the Council for Airport Opportunity (CAO) today announced the June iteration of Borough President Richards’ series of monthly job recruitment fairs at Queens Borough Hall will focus on the aviation industry, connecting residents with hundreds of job opportunities at Queens’ two airports.

“Kennedy and LaGuardia airports are more than just gateways to the entire New York region. They are two of the largest drivers of the Queens economy, supporting tens of thousands of jobs and generating billions of dollars in economic activity,” said Borough President RICHARDS. “As the redevelopment of both airports continue and thousands more jobs are created, we are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that we are hiring locally right here in our borough. Our June 30 job fair will help us achieve that goal by enabling talented prospective employees to meet with airlines and other aviation companies hiring right now.”

“The Council for Airport Opportunity is excited to partner with the Queens Borough President to host our June 30 aviation job fair,” said ANDREW CAMPBELL, Executive Director of the Council for Airport Opportunity. “We will have over 35 employers looking to fill 900 positions at both JFK and LaGuardia airports. These two airports are the economic engine of Queens. We want to ensure that the local Queens community has access to these employment opportunities and benefit from the economic development being generated by the redevelopment of both JFK and LaGuardia. This job fair is a great opportunity for jobseekers to connect directly with airport employers.”

The Queens Aviation Jobs Recruitment Fair, co-sponsored by Borough President Richards and the CAO, will be held in-person on Thursday, June 30, from 10am to 2pm in the Helen Marshall Cultural Center at Queens Borough Hall, located at 120-55 Queens Boulevard in Kew Gardens.

More than 35 companies in our borough’s burgeoning aviation industry will participate in the fair including, but not limited to, JetBlue, Delta Air Lines, Southwest Airlines, Endeavor Air, Airway LLC, OTG Management, Villa Restaurant, Prosegur Security, Modern Aviation, EULEN America, Worldwide Flight Services and more.

These companies are filling vacant positions for pilots, flight attendants, customer service representatives, food service workers, security guards, retail workers, drivers, technicians, ground services personnel, logistics personnel and more.

Borough President Richards has been holding monthly in-person job fairs at Queens Borough Hall on the last Thursday of each month since March, facilitating hundreds of connections between employers and job seekers. He also held several virtual job fairs earlier during the pandemic.
