Norwegian starts pilot recruitment for new Dublin base

Norwegian has started recruiting for a new pilot base at Dublin airport to support the low-fare airline’s growing international network.

The base will initially house about 40 pilots but the carrier is also exploring options for further pilot and cabin crew positions next summer.

Recruitment is underway for pilots who hold Boeing 737 operational certificates to serve flights from Dublin, Cork, Shannon and Belfast.

A series of roadshows are planned from tomorrow (Wednesday) which will offer the chance to meet with Norwegian’s pilot recruitment team and get further details.

Norwegian started 24 weekly transatlantic flights from Cork, Shannon, Dublin and Belfast this summer serving the New York, Boston and New England areas wiith new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.

Norwegian Air Resources chief executive, Bjørn Erik Barman-Jenssen, said: “With a number of transatlantic routes recently launched from Ireland and Belfast, and plans for continued expansion in future, opening a new base at Dublin airport is an important step to support our growing international operations.

“We have seen lots of interest in joining Norwegian so the new Dublin base will create some exciting opportunities to be part of a fast-growing airline, flying one of the youngest aircraft fleets in the world.

“Norwegian is looking forward to welcome many new pilots in the future on a journey that will offer exciting, global possibilities.”
