European Airline announces plans to recruit 1,000 new pilots over the next 5 years

European low-cost Carrier has re-opened its ‘Generation easyJet Pilot Training’ programme with plans to recruit 1000 new pilots over the next five years, with its training partner CAE.

Johan Lundgren, CEO of easyJet, said:

“We are delighted to be reopening our pilot training programme again for the first time since the pandemic hit and will see us recruit over 1000 new pilots in the coming years. easyJet has long championed greater diversity in the flight deck and this series of ads aims to highlight the extraordinary breadth of skills our pilots have and show that pilots can be found in all walks of life, in a bid to attract more diverse candidates.

We continue to focus on challenging gendered stereotypes of the career having doubled the number of female pilots flying with us in recent years. We also acknowledge that whilst we have made progress, there is still work to do. Increasing diversity in all of its forms in the flight deck is a long-term focus for easyJet and so we will continue to ensure we lead the industry on this issue.”
