The new captains will operate services out of one of the airline’s two main bases at London City and Edinburgh.

As an airline we have a proud reputation for safety and highly trained professionals and we are coming to Birmingham to search for exceptional individuals to join us. Our customers are at the heart of our business and it’s important that all our crew combine their flying skills with people skills and understand the importance of excellent onboard service.”
