Stay away and don’t even bother!! It’s all lies and deception. Smart Lynx hasn’t received a single 737Max yet and the OCC-start has been postponed several times, while the in anticipation waiting 737 pilots, who believed and signed F2R’s defrauded contract, haven’t and will not be paid, some of them even since March!!

Hello fellow stray dogs, i can not believe what kind of conditions they offer, i am wandering how many people still apply to these companies? This kind of companies (Low Cost, ACMI) in EU are disgrace for our profession. I can not believe it.

I received an email 6 weeks ago to standby for interview but so far still no date. I guess they have a delay for B737 delivery or they need more time to develop all the new SOP. I hope it will not take much longer... Anybody from the 737 here?

I'm so scared now

Are u guys serious? Well I've to admit that all this bad (very bad) opinions about Smartlynx leave me...scared. Here's the situation,I'm italian and I was looking for a company to apply as a cabin crew member. Few weeks ago I found this airline and I did it,I applied. I have signed their agreement and tomorrow my initial training will take place. Now,maybe I am to blame,but it seemed pretty nice. Unfortunately I didn't find too informations in order to "judge" the company. I found a youtube video about a girl who worked for this company and she said her experience was really nice and that she would do that again. I also visited glassdoor and indeed to find reviews about pilots and crew member but here's again...no negative reviews,it seemed ok everything. And now,I've found the only "parly hidden" post (this one) where tons of people say: "the worst company ever,stay away". It's true they hire with an agency (F2 resource) in my case,located in Malta. (At least as I read). I'm preparing to work on A320 type and the bases you're mentioning seem so unusual I mean...Nigeria? Why? Ok I know about Vietnam (pretty cool I guess) but Nigeria? Do they even fly there? No because hearing that video (about the girl I've spoken) she mentioned other bases like Oslo,Spain and so on. What have I to expertise?

Nico, SmartLynx is an ACMI Airline, which means they provide services for other airlines.

Right now SmartLynx has a contract with Air Peace from Nigeria, which means they are operating flights on behalf of Air Peace, so yes, you can be rostered to fly in Nigeria. I don't know exactly how long is each rotation (I suppose it should be a few weeks stationed there).
​​​​​​
Just go in FlightRadar24 and you'll some A320 from SmartLynx operating Air Peace flights in Nigeria.

Yes I know that because they are partners with other airlines like Volotea/Tui (a german if I don't go wrong)/EasyJet/VietJet (the Vietnam one) and so on. Never read about Peace Air but thank you for the informations you provide. What I like about this company (and the main reason why I applied) is that they periodically change the base so,If I don't like a base it will change in short periods. Said that,of course there's not only that base for sure,but considering i speak italian,english and spanish probably (soon or late) I'll finish in other countries. In their site they say "Your base will be assigned to you considering where you live and what languages you speak". Fine,english is spoken in so many countries (including Nigeria,but I simply don't wanna go there because I had a really bad experience on a holiday and in case,I'll let them know) but spanish is spoken only in Spain for Smartlynx (right because they do not operate in South America). Thank you again for every detail.

Very easy, go to Flightradar, choose Smartlynx Airlines there you can see all registered aircrafts flying for Smartlynx then check the flight numbers which you can easily identify which airlines they are working for out of which bases. Vietnam was 3 years ago last time. This year several UK, German, Belgium and Moroccon bases. Also Ireland, Portugal and Egypt. Not to mention their home bases Riga and Talinn.

Often you don't have luxury to choose your base. Company assign you %80 of the time where ever they need you. End of the story. Expect long waiting for starting line training since company is overwhelmed by too many new pilots, limited training capacity.

I hate to be the one to break it to you, but youíll find out anyway. Smartlynx isnít the kind of company that you can tell them you donít want to go somewhere.

If they roster you out of Nigeria, and you explain that you donít want to go because of personal experience, itíll be more of a case of ďthatís a shame, enjoy Nigeria!Ē or simply a goodbye.
