Volotea Signs A319 Pilot Training Contract with Airbus

Volotea, a Barcelona-based airline, has chosen Airbus to train all its pilots following the signing of an exclusive five-year contract.

The training, which will commence in January 2020, includes Type-Rating as well as long-term Recurrent training linked to Volotea's growing fleet of Airbus A319s – which will exceed 50 aircraft in 2023.

Volotea’s trainees will benefit from long-term use of Airbus’ full-flight simulators – located throughout Airbus’ Training Centre Network – and will be taught by a pool of expert pilot instructors, drawn from both Airbus and Volotea.

The airline will initially induct four of its pilot instructors into Airbus’ training regime, while in parallel, Airbus is aligning around 20 of its own instructors in collaboration with Volotea’s operational requirements.

As the airline progressively expands its A319 fleet, the size of the joint instructor pool is expected to commensurably increase.

Volotea has selected the Airbus A319 as the model for its planned fleet expansion.
