The Latvian airline airBaltic is departing for various destinations in February in search of pilots.

In February the company will host an airBaltic “Pilot Open Days” initiative in several cities, including Vilnius, Helsinki, Amsterdam and Stockholm, it said in a release.

"The initiative targets different types of pilots willing to become part of airBaltic flight crew. The airline is planning to recruit more than 100 pilots in 2018," the statement said.

During the “Pilot Open Days” events, all interested individuals will have a chance to learn more
about airBaltic’s flight crew vacancies and to receive more information about airBaltic along with an opportunity to ask questions directly to airBaltic chief pilots.

airBaltic says it is organizing “Pilot Open Days” in specific cities "due to the strong community of pilots.
airBaltic has a multicultural team with over 50 pilots from Lithuania, more than 26 pilots from
Netherlands and over 14 from Sweden."


  • On February 1, 2018 the first “Pilot Open Days” events will be held in Vilnius at 10:00 and at 15:00 in “AirInn Vilnius Hotel”.
  • On February 6, 2018 airBaltic team will travel to Stockholm and the events will take place at 10:00 and at 15:00 in “Radisson Blu Skycity Hotel”.
  • On February 8, 2018 the “Pilot Open Days” events will be held in Helsinki in “Cumulus Resort Airport Congress Center” at 10:00 and at 15:00.
  • On February 13, 2018 the final event will take place in Amsterdam in “Hotel NH Amsterdam Schiphol Airport” at 11:00.

The project does not require candidates to fill out an application form before the visit, but simply to
take their CV, personal identification document, and arrive for the event. For more information
about work at airBaltic, candidates can visit airline’s recruitment website:

In December 2017, airBaltic also started the application process for candidates to the airline’s
newly established Pilot Academy at airBalticTraining. Persons selected will be the first class of
students of the professional airline pilot training program and will become airBaltic pilots upon
completion of the program in about two years.
