Employment Situation For Pilots
last update
  Current Situation:  
Hiring for the hold pool (hence posititve status below). However pay cuts of ~20% from given rates until 31/03/2021 for current employees. For new joiners - lower salary by ~20% permanently. 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. No further redundancies expected, but roster is very unstable at the moment, and fixed/commuting patterns have been suspended. 23/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 Situation (+ve/neutral/-ve):  
Positive   23/Aug/20
