British Airways has launched a campaign
to recruit experienced pilots for its expanding regional operations.
job opportunities have arisen with the growth of its London City
schedule and increased regional flying from Manchester,
Birmingham, Bristol, Stansted and Edinburgh airports this year.
BA CityFlyer, a wholly owned British Airways company based at London City Airport, is on the look-out for
pilots to fly its fleet of 22 modern Embraer 170 and 190 jets.
The current entry requirements for captains has also been
expanded. Applicants need to have completed a total of 3,000
flying hours on an aircraft greater than 10 tonnes including 1,000
hours as the pilot in command.
BA CityFlyer Head of Flight
Crew Resourcing Strategy, Paul Nichols, said, “We are in the
middle of tremendous growth at BA CityFlyer, 2018 is our busiest
year so far with a 26% increase in the number of customer
seats available to many new destinations compared to last year and
the introduction of two new Embraer 190s to the fleet. It’s a
fantastic time to join this growing business and we are looking
for experienced pilots who enjoy the challenge of flying from a
steep approach airport like London City to some of the most
beautiful airports in the UK and Europe.”
