Etihad seeks pilots in Europe, preparing for new fleet
Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, starts its pilot’s recruitment across Europe.
The airline said that it is the first major pilot recruitment initiative in two years with the airline looking for pilots to join both its Airbus and Boeing fleets. The search will be focused on posts for First Officers.
Richard Hill, Chief Operations Officer for Etihad Airways, said: “2017 will see further additions to our fleet as we continue our growth. We are seeking to recruit highly motivated, skilled and qualified pilots to come and join our team.”
The airline has a current fleet of 123 aircraft, and between 2016 and 2025, the fleet is expected to rise to a total of 179 aircraft. Ten aircraft have joined the fleet during 2016 and the airline claimed that Etihad Airways’ fleet remains one of the youngest in the world.
The recruitment starts in Romania on the 13th of November 2016 and it will move to Bulgaria, Hungary, Lithuania, Greece, Poland, Belgium and Portugal.
