The offer targets pilots who have been actively employed at airberlin over the last six months and have undergone revalidation of their licenses within the last twelve months i.e. the operator proficiency check (OPC) or license proficiency check (LPC).


Depending on their flying experience, Austrian Airlines is offering job changers a gross annual salary in accordance with the collective wage agreement of between EUR 53,739 and EUR 59,732.


This means that the collective wage agreement also includes a monthly bonus ranging between EUR 209and EUR 428 depending on the pilot’s flying experience. This is complemented by possibilities to work overtime as well as pension fund payments. Moreover, a lump sum relocation package of EUR 15,000 is offered for pilots willing to transfer their place of employment. A special fast-track selection is designed to accelerate the relocation of pilots. Applicants will have to commit themselves to working for Austrian Airlines for a period of at least three years.


In addition to the so-called ready entry pilots who have completed their training, Austrian Airlines is also looking for aspiring pilots without flying experience (so-called ab initios).


The requirements demanded of prospective ab initio candidates include EU citizenship or a valid employment authorization for Austria, as well as a secondary school leaving certificate, secondary school vocational certificate, or the subject-related university entrance qualification of the country of origin. Furthermore, candidates should be at least 165 cm tall and have an unrestricted passport. In addition, they should have a very good command of written and spoken German and English. People wearing glasses or contact lenses may only have maximum of +5/-6 diopter lenses.
