For the moment there is no hiring in the company, but it might change quickly, so keep updatet.
Thomas Cook Scandinavia has T&C's which is considered to be the best possible in the Scandinavia'n market, including SAS. There is a perfect mix of short haul and long hauls operations, and the company has been making money for at least the last 10-12 yrs. I don't know any pilot there who look outside the company, for other challenges - and it's a very friendly and easy going atmosphere there.
And - if the company select YOU - they pay all costs from day one, including TR on Airbus. But Airbus experience is of course a benefit. They have bases all over Scandinavia.
So - Ryanair's, Norwegian's and JetTime "philosophy" has not yet reached the company. No contract pilots.

Without airbus time, you can forget about it. "Work" there is more like one, long party

Despite having rated pilots in the pool they were hired, due to being Norwegians.

So the only way to get in is to meet the requrements, be scandinavian and know someone on the inside i guess? Anything else?

It's correct - it's not a requirement to have Airbus rating and previous experience, but it's of course a benefit. The Company selects the best candidates, with or without TR, and the sim. check is an important part of the selection. Sometimes a "light guy" passes the check, while a "heavy guy" fails...And opposite most companies this days, everything is paid by Thomas Cook Scandinavia from day one at ground school, with training salary included.
There are probably many Airbus guys in the pool now this days...but again - it's been a Company philosophy to select rather young guys with the profile they look for. It's not a secret that they normally select Norwegian's to OSL, Danish to CPH and BLL etc...

Normally selected candidates may expect "upgrade " in Company from A320 / 321 to long hauls A330 in just 2-3 years after employment.
