Aer Lingus has launched a recruitment drive for more than 100 direct entry pilot positions, open to qualified pilots.

“The pilot recruitment drive comes as we continue to expand, having recently announced our ambitious growth strategy that will see our North Atlantic fleet increase from 17 to 30 aircraft by 2023,” said the airline.

“The growth strategy will see significant investments in guest experience, brand, fleet, network expansion and our people.

“Over the coming years, we’ll add the new Airbus A321neo long-range aircraft, giving successful pilots the opportunity to fly the longest-range, single-aisle aircraft in the world when introduced.”

The direct entry pilot application process is now open and will close on Friday, 28 December.
