German national air carrier Lufthansa will create 4,000 jobs in the country in 2011, its new boss Christoph Franz said on Monday.

"Lufthansa is growing. We are hiring 4,000 new employees just at our locations in Germany," he told daily Bild on Monday.

The company is looking to hire 2,200 flight attendants in Frankfurt and Munich, the paper reported, as well as 900 ground personnel, 270 student pilots, 300 apprentices and other technical staff.

"With the increase of our capacity in terms of seats and with bigger aircraft carrying out regional and intercontinental flights with the Airbus A380, our need for personnel is increasing, both in the cockpit and the cabin. With an increasing number of passengers, we also need more ground crew," Franz said.

Lufthansa also plans to continue to cut costs, Bild added, notably by reducing the number of planes it operates overall and replacing them with bigger aircraft capable of carrying more passengers.
