Norwegian has launched a recruitment drive to try and double the amount of flight crew operating out of Dublin. This is to enable the transatlantic expansion the airline has already announced, increasing the number of services operating between Ireland and the US and Canada.

The airline is looking to recruit 40 Captains and First Officers who hold a Boeing 737 operational certificate. Norwegian has recently announced an expanded summer schedule for 2019, which includes 40 transatlantic departures a week from Ireland to destinations in the US and Canada. The airline also operates services to other European cities from Dublin, such as Stockholm, Helsinki, Copenhagen and Oslo.

From the end of March 2019, there will be a daily service to Canada, flying between Dublin and Hamilton – Toronto. There will also be a daily service flying to Providence, Rhode Island and services to New York Stewart International Airport will fly five times per week from Shannon.

Helga Bollmann Leknes, Norwegian’s Chief Human Resources Officer, said: “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.”
