About Norwegian

Established in 1993, Norwegian is the world’s sixth largest low-cost airline carrying over 30 million passengers anually. The airline employs over 7,000 people and operates over 500 routes to over 130 destinations in Europe, North Africa, Middle East, Thailand, Caribbean and the U.S. Norwegian has a fleet of more than 130 aircraft, with an average age of just 3.6 years, making it one of the world’s youngest fleets.

Norwegian was named the Most Fuel-Efficient Airline on Transatlantic Routes by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) and was also named the World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline by the renowned SkyTrax World Airline Awards in 2015 and 2016, and for the fourth consecutive year, named Europe’s Best Low-Cost Airline. In 2017, Norwegian won the Skytrax World’s Best Low-Cost, Long Haul Airline and Europe’s Best Low-Cost Airline, as well as the Irish Aviation Industry’s Outstanding Contribution to Aviation award and the Freddie Awards Airline Program of the Year, Europe and Africa.

By 2020, Norwegian will operate a total of 42 B787s (8 B787-8 and 34 B787-9). With a fleet of twenty-one B787s by the end of 2017, another twenty-one will be delivered during the coming three years. Norwegian also has the option for another eight B787-9.

Obtaining your B787 type-rating

For eligible pilots, the course to obtain a B787 Dreamliner type rating takes 24 days, although a current type-rating on other Boeing types can reduce training time by up to eight days.

Training for Norwegian will be undertaken at the Boeing Training Centres in either London, Miami or Singapore. Non type rated B777/787 pilots need to provide a training cost bond for three years, decreasing by 1/3 each year.

The recruitment process

The first step is to fill out and submit your CV and application. You will then receive an e-mail confirming the receipt of your application. In addition you will be sent an invitation to do five online tests. Please complete the online tests as soon as possible. You will not advance to the next step until the online tests are completed. Are you successful in the online tests, you will not hear from the recruitment team unless you proceed to the next step or we need more information from you. With the large amount of applications we receive, it may take long time until you proceed to the next step. In the meantime your application is active. Please note that it is an ongoing recruitment process. Interviews and simulator assessments will be ongoing throughout the year.

Please fill out all required fields in the application. Under the section “Competence” you should fill out your flight hours and types flown (break down you flight hours into as many categories as possible, i.e. total time and time per aircraft type and divide between PIC and SIC). PICUS hours shall be registered as SIC hours. Under the section “Attachments” we would like you to upload copies of your updated resume/CV, your flight crew license, your passport and a picture of you, as well as any other document you believe would be of benefit in the assessment of your application.

If you do a significant update to your Webcruiter application, such as changing employer, type of aircraft or rank, please also send an email to pilotrecruitment787@norwegian.com with that information.

Rishworth Aviation will answer all your queries relating to the contract, employment and training cost bond (contact details to the right).

Applications can only be made through this website. Applications received via other sources (e.g. by phone, direct e-mail contact or through Norwegian employees) will not be accepted. Please note that due to the high volume of applications, reasons for unsuccessful applications will not be provided by Norwegian.
