Well that throws the cat amongst the pigeons. I personally see monarch as an employer of choice. Good salaries, good pension, good t's and c's you never really hear if anyone leaving them. However there are so many rumours of the Swiss family losing interest, and there are not many people of that experience out of work.

I only found out this morning through a friend, so had a peak on the website, lo and behold there it was!

Still very tempting I must say!

Also nothing in the application form where they ask you to stipulate your total hours/hours on jet etc etc

Expect current CV will cover flying qualifications.

If not a call/email before being interviewed.

On a positive note, good to see they are looking for Experienced FO's, could mean good career progression for hundreds of Prop guys should they wish to apply.

Not currently at Monarch but the website was updated about 2 months ago with the application forms. If you check the vacancies there is nothing there for flightdeck . So nothing really new Im afraid.

Absolutley no 330, seniority only. Slight possibility of 757 with a really easy life if you have a rating. But would only be for a couple of years til 75's go. Majority of recruitment wll be 320/1. mixture of type rated and Cadet.

Expect an advert in Flight International from next week or week after.
It should include a logon to an online application form.

Recruitment should start from Aug/Sep. It's good to see that we will be taking experienced/type rated, non type rated, military and cadets.

Well done Monarch.

A proper company that still values experience and maintains the dignity of our profession by refusing to join the race to the bottom.

Good show and good luck to all those who apply!

Having almost 4000 hours on 737, which fleet could they assign me on?

Is it based on "aircraft weight" experience (so in this case, the A320 is more expectable) or they prefer to keep you running on the same "brand" (like Emirates: Boeing - Boeing, Airbus - Airbus)?

From what I was told, an advert will appear in Flight International.
Logon information will be given, so that you can fill out the application using a dedicated app.

As someone mentioned earlier, the application forms have been available at the link for some time - the website hasn't just been updated.

I was (coincidentally!) going to submit an application today but maybe waiting is a better plan...

Sounds like something's in the pipeline...time to do some more digging on the company methinks!

Medium jet, well-known UK charter, c. 3k hours TT.

Is there a thread on here with more info? Did a quick search, couldn't find anything specific for pilots, just the usual rumours about new routes and planes.

Rosters, pay scale, A/L, command time, attractiveness of CC. That kind of thing.

Monarch are not expanding and will never challenge the 200+ fleets of easyJet and Ryanair so where are Monarch Fo's who are leaving....going....?
