British-Airways-planeBritish Airways has announced plans to recruit a record number of flying crew in 2016. The airline wants to hire more than 350 pilots and 1,600 cabin crew, the largest intake in a single year for the carrier.

All flying crew will be trained at BA’s global learning academy based at Heathrow Airport, west London, which includes 15 flight simulators.

Captain Stephen Riley, BA’s director of flight operations, said: “We have excellent opportunities for new pilots with the British Airways Future Pilot Programme entering its fifth successful year, as well as the very best experienced flight crew from other airlines and the military.

“We’re extremely proud that we have more female pilots than ever before, and we are continuing our recruitment campaign to encourage more women to apply to fly commercial aircraft.”

BA will serve 13 new routes from London this year, including Inverness and Costa Rican capital San Jose.

British Airways is the flag carrier airline of the United Kingdom and the largest airline in the United Kingdom based on fleet size. The airline is based in Waterside near its main hub at London Heathrow Airport.
