AirBaltic pilot recruitment

Latvian airline airBaltic has announced a recruitment drive for a total of 120 additional pilots, including graduates of the airBaltic Pilot Academy.

Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic, said: “While we continue to employ our airBaltic Pilot Academy graduates and rehire former employees, this time our needs for additional staff reach further, meaning that we are looking for external pilots to join our company. Additional pilots are required to prepare the airline for the capacity we will fly in summer 2023.”

The carrier says pilot candidates must have EU citizenship, a valid EU FCL CPL or ATPL license (EASA form 141) and have at least 300 hours of commercial air transport (CAT) operations on aircraft with EFIS, FMA and FMS systems – maximum take-off weight (MTOW) of the aircraft being at least 5.7 tonnes.

airBaltic currently employs 315 pilots. The company is continuing active recruitment, seeking more than 400 additional employees in total and currently has more than 40 open vacancies.
