Ryanair to hire 2,000 pilots for its brand new Boeing 737 MAXs
Ryanair announced that it will hire 2,000 pilots over the next three years as part of an expansion plan to launch its Boeing 737 MAX fleet and capture additional market share.
After receiving its first long-awaited Boeing 737 MAX 8200 in mid-June 2021, the Dublin based carrier is planning to hire and train new pilots. The company has to fill flight decks of some 210 incoming Boeing 737 MAXs.
The recruitment will kick off from looking for captains.
"As part of Ryanair’s career development initiatives, most captain vacancies created by these new aircraft deliveries will be filled by internal promotions which creates opportunities for replacement first officers, and ultimately new cadet pilots who can kick start their pilot career with Ryanair so they can grow into the next generation of Ryanair’s first officers and captains," wrote Ryanair in a statement.
The carrier intends on hiring and training crews to be ready to start operations for the summer of 2022.
