Today we announced our largest ever pilot recruitment drive, with up to 100 direct entry pilot positions available at our home base at Dublin Airport. Ireland’s only 4 Star airline promises an exciting and rewarding career flying modern Airbus A320/1 and Airbus A330 to more than 100 destinations across UK, Europe and North America.

We’ve been growing significantly in recent years, having added five new transatlantic routes to our longhaul network in the last two years alone: Hartford, Los Angeles, Newark, Miami and, just this month, Philadelphia.

In fact, this winter we’ll operate our largest ever winter programme, boasting 300,000 additional seats to Europe and North America.

Our fleet is also expanding:  we’re due to take delivery of eight brand new Airbus A321neo LRs in the next few years, as well as a new Airbus A330 aircraft by the end of 2017.

According to Mike Rutter, Aer Lingus Chief Operating Officer: “This is an exciting time to join Aer Lingus. As Ireland’s only 4 Star airline, we are proud to be internationally recognised for the 4 Star quality guest experience we provide. We are looking for highly motivated individuals who are committed to delivering our excellent service and who are tuned into the challenging commercial priorities faced by a value carrier in today’s highly competitive aviation sector. There are 100 positions available for direct entry pilots and over the next three years we plan to recruit up to 200.”
