Ryanair has begun a search for 2,000 additional pilots to staff aircraft deliveries over the next three years as the airline recovers and rebuilds from the Covid-19 outbreak.
Ryanair has already received its first Boeing 737-8 200 Gamechanger aircraft, which will help the airline decrease expenses, reduce fuel usage, and reduce noise and CO2 emissions.
This investment in new aircraft arriving during the recovery phase of the Covid-19 Pandemic strengthens Ryanair’s environmental commitment as Europe’s greenest and cleanest major airline, while also providing exciting opportunities for experienced and aspiring pilots to secure the best pilot jobs in aviation.
Ryanair pilots enjoy competitive pay, industry-leading five-on, four-off rosters, exceptional career development, and world-class training.
As part of Ryanair’s career development initiatives, the majority of Captain vacancies created by new aircraft deliveries will be filled by internal promotions, creating opportunities for replacement First Officers and, eventually, new cadet pilots who can kickstart their pilot career with Ryanair and grow into the next generation of Ryanair’s First Officers and Captains.
Training courses are being held throughout 2021 in preparation for positions all throughout Europe in the summer of 2022. As part of this recruitment drive, Ryanair has teamed with Airline Flight Academy in Dublin to provide Boeing 737 Training Courses.
