Beginning in 2023, SWISS will start hiring and training new pilots again.
The European Flight Academy, which is run by Lufthansa Aviation Training, will conduct the training. SWISS student pilots may additionally benefit from financial training support.
The hiring and training of new pilots will restart for Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) in 2019 after being put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Additionally, 80 first officers who have already finished their training with Lufthansa Aviation Training Switzerland will start working for SWISS (LAT).
“We are really pleased that, after a two-year hiring freeze, we can now offer a new generation of SWISS pilots job prospects, career perspectives and an attractive workplace aloft, and can welcome more new colleagues to our cockpit crew corps,” says SWISS Head of Flight Operations Stefan-Kenan Scheib.
“We’re looking to train new cockpit personnel now, to ensure that we continue to meet all our cockpit crewing needs for our SWISS flight operations.”
Several locales, including Opfikon and Grenchen in Switzerland and Goodyear (Arizona) in the United States, will host the training.
“Now is the ideal time for talented young individuals to seek a cockpit career,” says Manuel Meier, Managing Director of Lufthansa Aviation Training Switzerland AG.
“As the Lufthansa Group’s Swiss-based training organization, we offer our applicants high-quality basic and further flight training with SWISS instructors and a state-of-the-art training aircraft fleet.”
