Budget airline Ryanair have announced that they are to recruit 2,000 new pilots over the next three years to operate the new Boeing 737 Max.
The new Boeing 737 Max has been described as a “gamechanger aircraft” as the plane saves on fuel costs and reduction on CO2 emissions and less noise.
Ryanair’s people director Darrell Hughes said, “As we take delivery of more than 210 Boeing 737-8200 Gamechanger aircraft, Ryanair will recruit 2,000-plus pilots over the next three years to fill positions created by this growth.
“This is great news for experienced and aspiring pilots but also for our own pilots who will enjoy fast-tracked promotions.
“Throughout the pandemic, Ryanair has worked closely with our people to save jobs and we are delighted to start planning for a return to growth over the coming years as we recover from the Covid-19 crisis and grow to 200m guests by 2024.”
