Ascend Airways will begin operating a small fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft (NG and MAX) in the ACMI market, opening its first operational base at London Gatwick in early 2024. The company is founded on the legacy of Synergy Aviation, a respected UK AOC holder, which has been acquired by Avia Solutions Group, already the world’s largest ACMI provider with over 180 airliners in operation.
We are seeking candidates for positions of Captain, reporting to the Director of Flight Operations. These are important roles, and the successful candidates will play a key part in the birth of this new airline and enjoy the possibilities for career advancement which our growth will bring. The positions will be based at London Gatwick and will involve some night-stopping with occasional longer periods up to two weeks away from base during the winter season only. The flying pattern will comprise busy summer months but with quieter winter rosters anticipated, pilots may take additional time off during the winter season to suit their lifestyle.
