The Latvian airline airBaltic will host an airBaltic Pilot Open Days initiative in Helsinki on February 8, said a press release.

It will be held in Cumulus Resort Airport Congress Center from 10am to 3pm. The initiative targets different types of pilots willing to become part of airBaltic flight crew. The airline is planning to recruit more than 100 pilots in 2018.

“An excellent team is essential to our successful operation and airBaltic’s growth over the past years has confirmed that. Our route map is expanding, the fleet is growing and more passengers travel with us. Such development requires our team to be highly motivated. And naturally, due to the production increase, airBaltic will recruit more pilots this year. Working at airBaltic has many advantages for all positions, but considering our growth and the changing pilot industry, we are now further improving our pilot remuneration system,” Pauls Cālītis, Senior Vice President Flight Operations of airBaltic said.

During the Pilot Open Days event, all interested individuals will have a chance to learn more about airBaltic’s flight crew vacancies and to receive more information about airBaltic.

During the event, the participants will have opportunity to ask questions directly to airBaltic chief pilots and receive all the necessary information on how to join the dynamic and motivated team of the world’s most punctual airline airBaltic.

The project does not require candidates to fill out an application form before the visit, but simply to take their CV, personal identification document, and arrive for the event.

In December 2017, airBaltic also started the application process for candidates to the airline’s newly established Pilot Academy at airBalticTraining. Persons selected will be the first class of students of the professional airline pilot training programme and will become airBaltic pilots upon completion of the programme in about two years time.
