British Air launches pilot recruitment campaign

British Airways has announced the launch of a new campaign to recruit experienced pilots for its regional operation, the company said.

The job opportunities have arisen with the growth of British Air´s London City schedule and increased regional flying from Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Stansted and Edinburgh airports this year.

BA CityFlyer, the wholly owned British Airways company with its home base at London City Airport, is seeking pilots to fly its fleet of 22 Embraer 170 and 190 jets.

British Airways (BA) is the flag carrier and the largest airline in the United Kingdom based on fleet size, or the second largest, behind easyJet, when measured by passengers carried. The airline is based in Waterside near its main hub at London Heathrow Airport.
