easyJet has launched a recruitment drive for people over the age of 45 to join its cabin crew.

Parents whose children have left home or started their own careers, as well as anyone looking for a new career later in life, are encouraged to apply.

In the last four years, the airline has seen a 27 percent increase in cabin crew over the age of 45, with a 30 percent increase in people over 60 in the last year.

The recruitment campaign began with a series of advertisements featuring real-life cabin crew.
