Our airline

"GROW WITH US – We want you to be part of our journey…"

BA Cityflyer is the leading airline bringing business and leisure customers into the heart of London via our main base at London City Airport. The drive to provide industry-defining standards of customer service in a demanding yet exciting environment is what we require of our high-calibre pilots. As a Captain at BA CityFlyer you will be expected to work flexibly within a growing and tight-knit team in order to deliver our demanding seven-day-a-week operation. Serving a mixture of business and leisure destinations throughout Europe, regular UK and overseas night stops will be a feature of your touring roster. Operating primarily from London City Airport, with its high-value and sophisticated customer base, we operate daily in one of the world's most challenging operating environments; therefore, our pilots are required to maintain the highest professional standards.

Due to a period of rapid expansion – which includes flying "Summer Sun" routes from Stansted and the arrival of our 20th Embraer on fleet – we are currently recruiting for Captains to join our team on a full-time, permanent basis. You'll fly a fleet of modern aircraft from our home at London City Airport – make it yours.
