Good day,

​​​​​​I submitted my application amd am glad there is a great forum such as this to share with other prospective cadets. Waiting patiently for an invitation to interview and want to take this moment to wish us all the best. Let the games begin.

When did you apply the first time? Was a degree a requirement at that time?

No. I applied when it was not a requirement. However the requirements changed when I was waiting for an interview invite. KQ refused to process without a degree. I was left in the cold. Seen the deadline has been extended. It looks like they did not get enough candidates.

Hi Javier, I have also been trying to apply but I am not sure the application went through since on my job portal it shows there is a draft submission. However I reveived an attomated reply "We have received the profile you submitted to our company. We thank you for your interest and would like............" does this mean it went through?

I doubt. Please make sure it reads as completed submission. You should receive an email with the title Subject:Ab Initio Pilot Trainee-1900008X at Kenya Airways.

Hey for those who completed AB Initio program, How long does it take? Upon success, can someone choose between a long haul and a short-haul job?
