TAIPEI--V Air, a budget carrier set up by Taiwan-based TransAsia Airways, has received 1,817 applications in the two weeks since it started recruiting, with selection set to take place March 21.
Most of the applicants are in the hospitality industry, according to TransAsia, which added that the ratio between female to male applicants is 8:2, suggesting more interest from men in the service sector compared with a previous ratio of 9:1, which is traditionally dominated by women.
In addition, TransAsia said it will reveal V Air's corporate logo and its top management next week.
TransAsia, which announced last year that it had decided to tap into the emerging market of budget airlines in Taiwan, said its business revenue surpassed NT$1.97 billion (US$64.7 million) in the first two months of 2014.
The figure represents 12.24 percent year-on-year growth, the airline said.
