US Airways Group Inc., the biggest airline operating at Pittsburgh International Airport, received more than 16,500 applications for 450 flight-attendant positions in its biggest hiring push for the job since 2010.

About 700 applicants have advanced to the interview stage and 240 offers have been made, US Airways said in its weekly employee newsletter. The first round of new hires started training this week, said Michelle Mohr, a spokeswoman.

“The interest around it has been astounding,” Mohr said.

The influx echoes the rush for flight-attendant jobs at Delta Air Lines Inc., which said last month that its 300 openings attracted 22,000 candidates.
