Current Situation:  
Pay cuts of ~20% from given rates until 31/03/2021. Many people were forced to reallocate to new bases and are promised priority when position opens at previous base. New joiners will be offered the least popular bases (Balkans, forget about MXP, VIE, DTM, LCA, WAW, KRK, BUD etc.) and 24 months base freeze - beware! No further redundancies expected, but roster is very unstable at the moment, and fixed/commuting patterns have been suspended. You can practice aptitude and psychometric tests here. 1/Aug/20
 
Outlook:  
Some senior and experienced pilots have been fired, new bases opening and growth expected from July 2020. Recruitment open, but hiring for 2021 only, not before.   1/Aug/20
Overall Hiring Situation (+ve/neutral/-ve):
