Taipei, Sept. 22 (CNA) Over 4,000 people were interviewed Saturday in the first stage of a selection process to hire 126 flight attendants for China Airlines (CAL), Taiwan's largest carrier.

CAL’s recruitment drive, its second this year, is being conducted in two stages as part of its business expansion plan.

The airline said it hopes to find flight attendants with excellent communication skills.

An independent panel of representatives from the government, academic and industrial sectors was interviewing more than 4,000 applicants over the weekend, CAL said.

In the final stage of the process Oct. 6-7, CAL will hire 126 people to carry out its customer-centered policy, but first they will put into five months of training, the airline said.

CAL currently employs around 2,800 flight attendants from Taiwan, Japan, India, Vietnam and Thailand. On its flights, service is provided in various languages such as Italian, Japanese and Korean, the airline said.
