CityFlyer seeks captains

Experienced pilots with existing commercial or military experience are being sought by BA CityFlyer, a wholly-owned subsidiary of British Airways, in a campaign to attract new captains.

The airline is holding an open day at the Hilton Metropole hotel at Birmingham NEC next Monday, 27 November, with head of flight operations Captain Steve Cook for potential recruits to operate flights on its growing network. 

CityFlyer is the leading airline at London City Airport, operating a fleet of 20 Embraer 170 and 190 aircraft to more than 30 destinations throughout the UK and Europe. It also began flying from Birmingham Airport in May this year for the first time in 10 years.

In total, together with new services from Manchester, Bristol and Stansted, CityFlyer currently operates 58 routes to business and leisure destinations across Europe.

The airline currently has 215 pilots, 104 captains and 111 first officers and is also one of the biggest employers of women pilots, representing 15% of the workforce in total, including eight captains.

The new captains will operate services out of one of the two main bases at London City and Edinburgh.
