Hub - easyJet plane

easyJet recently celebrated its 20th year in the aviation industry  and have come a long way in that time. Today, they fly over 600 routes to more than 30 countries in well over 200 Airbus aircraft – all with the belief that air travel  should be accessible to everyone.

They also believe in investing in future talent, with a new opportunity to provide experienced and professional Captains with the chance to achieve a type-rating on the A320 aircraft – as well as a position in either sunny Porto or the Portuguese capital of Lisbon. Along with the upfront funding comes accommodation in the UK during training, as well as a basic salary.

Now, non-type rated Captains can get the training they need to move their careers on to one of the industry’s most versatile and popular commercial aircraft, with the future potential to fly one of the brand new Airbus Neos once they’re delivered in 2018.

As soon as the type rating is completed, these pilots will join the easyJet team in Portugal, and continue to build their experience flying some of the most exciting and challenging routes, maybe Lisbon to Funchal or Porto to Basel. They will also have the chance to learn from the  highly experienced and professional flight operations training team.

That’s just the start, too. People who join easyJet, and bring their already impressive skills to the business, will have the support to learn even more every day – with further development opportunities based on performance, not just hours flown.

So if you’re currently a Captain on an aircraft above 30 tonnes MTOW, with a minimum total of 4,000 flying hours, now’s your chance to join one of aviation’s biggest success stories.
