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 unrivaled customer service.

We offer a greater choice of fleet types and routes, both long and shorthaul, than any other UK airline. And this year, our Boeing fleets continue to increase we are seeking suitably qualified pilots to join British Airways on our B777 and B787 fleets, based at London Heathrow. 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.

This recruitment campaign is for pilots holding a valid type rating on the Boeing B777/B787. To be considered you will need 1500 hours on an aircraft that satisfies ZFT of which a minimum of 500 hours should be on the B777/B787 within the last 12 months.

We will always endeavour to match flying experience and assessment performance to the most appropriate fleet where possible. Opportunities on both our Short and Long Haul Airbus fleets at Heathrow or Gatwick could also be offered to successful pilots depending on operational requirements at that time.

For prospective pilots that are not operating these aircraft types, you can still apply to join BA via our Airbus A320/A350/A380 campaign or Direct Entry Pilot campaign.

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