Job Description

Airbus A320/A350/A380 Vacancies

The current closing date is 31st January 2019.

Customers are at the heart of everything we do at British Airways. Our commitment to them is integral to our promise: To Fly. To Serve.

For British Airways Pilots, the customer always comes first. Your goal will be to provide the very best flight experience possible. Wherever you are going, your flying will be world class. The life of a commercial pilot is both challenging and exciting. Never more so than at British Airways. Joining one of the most progressive international airlines in the industry, you’ll be challenged every day to perform to the highest standards. In everything you do, you will be integral to delivering our reputation for unrivalled customer service.

We offer a greater choice of fleet types and routes, both long and shorthaul, than any other UK airline. And this year, we are delighted to welcome the Airbus A350 to our already modern fleet and we are seeking pilots to join British Airways on our A320, A350 and A380 fleets. Far beyond the flight deck, you’ll be respected for the difference you make. You can be proud to lead a superb customer-centric operation. With you on board, we’ll achieve our vision to become the ‘most admired airline’.

With a generous salary, biddable roster to destinations around the globe, excellent staff travel benefits and a competitive pension, 2019 is a great year to join us as we continue to grow and celebrate our 100th year of providing a world class airline to Britain and the world.

If you aspire to be a Captain of the future and have impressive determination, impeccable professionalism and total devotion to our customers, we would love to hear from you. Experienced commercial pilots can apply via the Direct Entry Pilot Scheme.

You belong up here with us. That’s why we’ll provide you with world-class training, invaluable experience and the rewards and career progression you would expect from a global premium airline.

This recruitment campaign is for pilots that currently operate the Airbus A319/A320/A321, A330, A340, A350 and A380. You must have a valid rating on an Airbus with a minimum of 500 hours on type. To be considered for the A350 or A380 you will need 1500 hours on an aircraft that satisfies ZFT with 500 hours on type.

The A320 remains our primary recruiting fleet and most offers for the A320 are at Gatwick, there may be additional requirements for Heathrow. Your base will be confirmed at point of offer and there is no guarantee of an offer to the A350 or A380 even if you meet the entry requirements although we will always endeavour to match flying experience and assessment performance to the most appropriate fleet. Further Long Haul opportunities on our Boeing fleet could also be offered depending on operational requirements at that time.

For prospective pilots that are not operating these aircraft types, you can still apply to join BA for our Boeing – Long Haul campaign or Direct Entry Pilot.

If you are selected, the assessment will involve a testing session, an interview and a simulator session. The assessment dates are ongoing.
