Which UK airlines have aircraft on order


As a trainee pilot, vital information is how many aircraft the airlines you want to work for are ordering and when. While not all aircraft will go towards expansion, some will which in turn will create more pilot jobs that you can hopefully fill someday. As of 1/10/2015 this is a list of which UK airlines have aircraft on order. I will include companies such as Ryanair on this list as they have a huge UK presence. Here is the list of which UK airlines have aircraft on order.

British Airways
13 x Airbus A320neo
7x Airbus A321neo
18x Airbus A350-1000 (18 options)
3x Airbus A380 (7 options)
21x Boeing 787-9

So as you can see the UK airlines are ordering planes which will create some jobs. This doesn’t mean that competition for these jobs will not still be fierce, they will, but at leas the jobs are being created in the market. Also you have to keep in mind that these airlines may not be looking to recruit fresh graduates with FATPL’s.
