Irish pilots feeling unwanted by current employer might like to know Norwegian is recruiting

As more strikes continue to bite into Ryanair's schedules as unhappy staff seek a better future, the worlds best long-haul airline, Norwegian announce more job opportunities in Ireland.

Norwegian is continuing to expand and as such has just launched a new recruitment drive in Ireland for pilots who hold a Boeing 737 operational certificate. The carrier currently has 40 pilot jobs up for grabs, including both captains and First Officers, which will effectively double the number the airline has operating from its Dublin base.

The hunt for more pilots follows the airlines' recent announcement of an expanded 2019 summer schedule with 40 weekly transatlantic departures from March 2019, an increase of 37%, to the USA and Canada from Ireland. The airline also has flights to some key European cities from Dublin, including the top Nordic destinations of Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen. 

Some of the major increases to Norwegian's summer schedule from Ireland include the brand new daily service to Canada which begins on 31st March 2019, flights to Providence, Rhode Island will increase to a daily service and services to New York Stewart International Airport from Shannon will increase to five flights a week.

“Norwegian offers pilots a rewarding career with a diverse route network which spans both long haul and short haul destinations flying the latest Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. We look forward to welcoming qualified pilots who want to work for an airline that recognises the vital contribution that they make to our business during this continued phase of expansion in Ireland." Said Helga Bollmann Leknes, Chief Human Resources Officer at Norwegian.
