Overnights are in the aircraft, daystops in hotel.
The roster is 8/6​​​. They currently fly only for Amazon and apparently they fly close to 50 hours per month. The morale is very good.

For the Belgians the roster is random, around 30-35 hours per months on the FedEx network. Three or four weekend stops, otherwise weekends are off, unless there is a horse charter or NATO flight. Also here the morale is good.

Of course they are! 🤦🏻‍♂️ Sounds quite good.

So, is it there and backs or more of a tour? Thanks 👍🏻

Thats not correct, ASL Ireland fly also for DHL Express. It depends on what aircraft type you are assigned.

True, but ASLI are looking for 737 pilots.

I don't know about it with the Amazon contract, but if it's "there and backs" then you can expect a daystop at a destination in the network, return to EMA, and then daystop in another place in the network.

Again, Thanks!

This would be on the 737, preferably Southend based. Just trying to understand if the 8 on is potentially 8 days away from home? TIA

Unfortunately, I can't further expand on that but hopefully a 'colleague' is reading this and will help. I would expect to be on standby every once in a while.

Where I work a 4 day (it's the max I get) rotation is always a return to the main base every night, rest 2-3 hours and then fly to another destination. Some that live nearby go home, otherwise we rest at base as our employer gave us facilities for that.

Be aware that all the info I've given you are from a friend that works for ASLI, so it's second hand info.

The Airbus fleet is flying for DHL in Asia. They have recently brought an A330 back to Europe that will fly for DHL. I don't know what the A300 is doing at the moment, I guess also DHL. The last I heard about the ATR fleet is that is currently grounded - or most of it - due to Covid-19.

Dear Gents,
Please forgive me if I am being too direct, if it is more convenient to you, you may answer via PM...
What I am looking for is as much as possible on different salaries and contracts with ASLIreland including all agencies which they use. Of utmost help will be copies of contracts, you are more than welcome to erase all personal information.
No name will be mentioned, no source will be disclosed.
Thank you very much in advance, your help is highly appreciated!!!
Kind regards,
Sascha

On the B737 its generally a Thursday-Thursday or Friday-Friday roster with A and B groups . So its close to week On/Off . You get 3 periods of leave additionally and each period of leave generates a period of 20 days . The aircraft are mainly B737 - 400 series but ex Ryanair NGs are being introduced with 2 already in service and the aircraft are the Boeing conversion . The 737 aircraft operate on the the Amazon and DHL networks . The DHL flights are almost all night flights but the Amazon network is a mixture of both day and night .
The company provided hotels are high quality mainly at airports rather than the city centre . The company also operates A330-300F and A300-600F on the DHL network in europe and a small number of ATR for Fedex . All of the above information is about ASL Ireland.

Are ASL recruiting experienced 737 FOs with dual EU/U.K. nationality? There’s nothing on their website but I’ve heard a few scraps from rumor control.

Why is that?

UK passport holders have the right to work in Ireland. Are there no aircrew based in Ireland?

ASL Ireland don't have any 737 operations out of any Irish airports at the moment. Most of the flying is taking place out of continental airports. I stand to be corrected.

They do seasonally. Dub base is overcrewed.
