Looking for work? The Lansing airport, Dean Transportation are hiring

LANSING – Greater Lansing transportation agencies are hoping their efforts to fill job openings will take off as the pandemic wanes.

The Capital Region Airport Authority is holding a job fair Wednesday and Thursday to fill open positions at the airport and with its partner organizations. Dean Transportation launched an online hiring event Tuesday aiming to fill 200 openings statewide.

“As we come rolling out the pandemic, there’s a lot of opportunities in the transportation field,” said Nicole Noll-Williams, the airport authority’s president and CEO.

Airlines, bus services and car rental companies are struggling to find employees. The job fair is designed to get people connected with those employers quickly, she said.

No pre-registration is needed and parking is free for applicants, according to airport authority.

The companies looking to fill positions are UPS, Unifi Service, Avflight, Clean Team, the Capital Area Transportation Authority and Capital Region Airport Authority.
