Dublin based airline Ryanair has announced it will recruit 2,000 new pilots over the next three years.

It said it needs more crew to operate the new Boeing 737 Max aircraft, which has also been dubbed as the “Gamechanger” because of its savings on fuel costs, reduction on CO2 emissions and reduced noise.

Ryanair’s people director Darrell Hughes said: “As we take delivery of more than 210 Boeing 737-8200 Gamechanger aircraft, Ryanair will recruit 2,000-plus pilots over the next three years to fill positions created by this growth.

“This is great news for experienced and aspiring pilots but also for our own pilots who will enjoy fast-tracked promotions.”

Mr Hughes added that throughout the pandemic, Ryanair has worked closely with people to save jobs and it has now started to plan for a return to growth over the coming years as it recovers from the Covid-19 crisis.

The firm hopes to grow to 200 million guests by 2024..
