Ab-Initio Training

Any Airlines offering Ab-initio training?

Tried Proflight, Royal, SAA, KQ, Cathay Pacific and BA and nothing has come up. This is the third year running i am going through this

If you know of any airline recruiting, please let me know

Ab-Initio Training

The big airlines don't need to run abinitio. They can simply pick up the people wanting to move on from low cost carriers.

I suggest you broaden your horizons much wider than that paltry handful you suggested there, and I hate to burst your bubble but if you go to an interview and tell them that you've just been waiting years for a chance instead of actively developing yourself, they'll probably set fire to your application in front if you.

Majority of the African carriers do offer Ab-initio training but only to their citizen. For example Kenya Airways do have Ab-initio training but it's only for Kenyan citizen.

But like what Dash8driver1312 said, you need to broaden your horizon. See below international Ab-initio training programs. Please be aware most of these programs will cost you more than $110,000 USD with a no guarantee on a job offer.
