Our bases in Portugal have enjoyed great success since opening; we’ve flown over 10 million passengers in just over five years and more aircraft are on their way to join Lisbon and Porto soon. We can offer great opportunities for existing A320 or Airbus CCQ (A330/40) Captains already based here, or for those thinking of a move to sunnier climes. If you’re not rated to any Airbus aircraft currently, then take a look at our NTR adverts on our careers page for entry criteria.
