British Airways is recruiting new pilots for its expanding fleet of Embraer jet aircraft at London City Airport.



An ambitious recruitment programme is launched this month to find both direct entry captains and first officers to join BA CityFlyer, the wholly owned British Airways’ subsidiary that operates from the Docklands airport to more than 30 business and leisure destinations across Europe.

The new recruits will join over 200 existing pilots who currently fly the fleet of 20 Embraer 170 and Embraer 190 jet aircraft based at London City Airport.


Paul Nicholls, head of flight crew, said: “As we continue to expand we are recruiting pilots to play a pivotal role in our success and we are searching for exceptional individuals to join our growing team. 


“We want to hear from men and women with an impressive training record and the commitment, energy and flexibility to operate in a dynamic environment with the passion to deliver excellent standards of customer service.”


The recruitment drive is being launched on September 19 with a roadshow at The Heathrow Hotel Bath Road, close to Heathrow Airport, hosted by the BA CityFlyer Pilot Management team.

Captain Dave Cox, head of crew training and Captain Steve Cook, head of flight operations, will be on hand with representatives from rostering and HR teams to discuss the airline, career, lifestyle, selection and application process.


The event is aimed at experienced pilots with existing commercial or military experience.

All BA CityFlyer pilots are supported in their career progression with the opportunity to apply to British Airways mainline following a minimum of two years service and subject to vacancies being available.



Note to editors:

  • The recruitment roadshow is at The Heathrow Hotel Bath Road, The Grove, Bath Road, West Drayton, Middlesex, UB7 0DG on Monday 19 September from 10am-6pm.  All experienced pilots are welcome to attend
