the recruitment of 2000 new pilots starts today

Ryanair announces a recruitment campaign for 2,000 new pilots to be included in the crew of the aircraft for delivery over the next 3 years, as it recovers and reorganizes itself after the Covid-19 pandemic. Ryanair has taken delivery of its first Boeing 737-8200 Gamechanger, which helps the airline to reduce costs, fuel consumption, noise and CO2 emissions.

This investment in new aircraft arriving during the recovery phase from the Covid-19 pandemic reinforces Ryanair’s environmental commitment as Europe’s greenest and cleanest airline and also creates exciting opportunities for experienced and aspiring pilots to secure better jobs in the aviation industry. Ryanair pilots enjoy excellent pay, with rotations involving five days of work and four days of rest (industry leading), exceptional career opportunities and professional development and an international level training.

As part of Ryanair’s career development initiatives, most of the Captain vacancies created by these new aircraft deliveries will be filled through internal promotions, creating opportunities for the replacement of First Officers and, ultimately, new cadet pilots who they can start their career with Ryanair and become the next generation of Ryanair first officers and captains. The training courses take place in 2021 to be ready for summer 2022 to fill positions across Europe. Ryanair has partnered with the Dublin Airline Flight Academy to offer training for Boeing 737s as part of this recruiting campaign.

“As we take delivery of more than 210 revolutionary Boeing 737-8200 aircraft, Ryanair will recruit over 2,000 pilots over the next 3 years to fill the vacancies created by this growth,” said Darrell Hughes, Ryanair’s director of operations. This is great news for experienced and aspiring pilots, but also for our pilots, who will appreciate the possibilities of promotions. Over the course of the pandemic, Ryanair has worked closely with their staff to save jobs and we are delighted to start planning a return to growth for the next few years as we recover from the Covid-19 crisis and reach 200 million. of passengers by fiscal year 2024 ″.
