Easyjet U.K First Officer Salaries

Hi

I am an FO on the A320 and been offered employment with EasyJet U.K on a 100% contract with flexible roster.

Starting salary is 55,579K and paying 90% of this salary for the first 6 months with a 5K training bond. Sector pay 21.00 pounds per sector.

Senior First Officer is 68K but no upgrade possible until 2 years service complete.

I am currently working for a ACMI company and the basic is 60K, therefore EasyJet are offering less.

With all the sector pay and allowances, can anyone give me an idea of the take home pay?

I did think Easyjet were going to offer a higher basic and I am unsure whether to take the position.

Not an Ezy pilot, am uk based however so semi aware ish of the tax implications. This link is the best uk tax calculator I think there is. Breaks it all down for you and allows pension contributions etc. if you just assume all the income is taxable itíll work. Throw 300 sectors in, itíll be sort of about right, ish.

I think they may be pretty similar for a bit but look at the long game. Ezy UK as a captain, thatís very good. No idea who your operator is, unless you spent the early part of this year flying boxes to Brussels for Virgin perhaps, but Iíd suggest the terms Ezy are offering are likely to be better. Not guaranteed to be, but likely.

You canít compare an ACMI to EZY. Take EZY without question! I donít think the ACMI will offer a pension or have as bright a future as EZY

FO including sector pay is on average £3700 take home and SFO around 4300. After 2 years as an FO you'll upgrade to SFO and you can take a fixed roster pattern of 5/4/5/3. Once you've got 3000 factored hours you can apply for and upgrade and command pay in the UK from April 1st will be £117k + sector (approx 14k) + loyalty pay (5/10/15% dependent on service length).

If you're happy doing ACMI work then stay where you are. For more choices in the long term, job stability, command prospects, fixed roster etc then easyJet is a no brainer. If you simply want to sell out to the highest bidder in the short term then apply to someone like Emirates.

What is the pension on offer at Ezy?

Can a new hire start as SFO, or do you have to do your 2 years as FO first regardless?

cheers!

EZY puts 7% of salary into pension. If you meet the hours for SFO then in theory it should be possible as has happened plenty in the past.

For the thread starter, as others have pointed out not really comparable to ACMI. Contract work "should" attract a higher rate of pay as 9 times out of 10 pay is all you get. At EZY you get basic pay, sector pay, holiday pay, sick pay, Loss of licence at 1.3 times salary, Uniform ( no laughing at the back ), crew food ( I said NO laughing ), death in service benefit, staff travel, share schemes, medical fully funded, 20 days paid leave with wrap around days off in a flexible roster so 5 days leave gives you 9 days off, a preference bidding system for duty types, early/late etc, paid car parking at home base, sector pay for positioning, a GDO bidding scheme where flexible rosters can bid for "guaranteed days off" and a bonus scheme that seems to pay out at max when we make a loss it seems. Fixed pattern roster when appropriate is good, you have a fairly comprehensive scheduling agreement that pays you for accepting changes to your roster within defined parameters or you can refuse - but the most significant factor, and what makes most of the above exist and saved many many skins during Covid is EZY UK is strongly represented by BALPA with a very high % of UK pilots members. They also have your back when things don't go quite as planned and whist not perfect have assisted many in EZY. Regional bases as well if paying for a flat share with 17 others in LGW area is not your thing.

Its not able selling out to the highest bidder, I have a young family and want to make sure I can cover all bills for the first few years at Easyjet. Especially if waiting for 2 years service to get SFO. I thought their basic starting salary would have been the same or more to my current. employer. Thanks for all the feedback.

Good evening all, are EZY currently recruiting low hour FOs? Are they offering type rating and new recruits bonded for the same?

Pay negotiations have started. I would be expecting a bumper pay deal for both seats, especially for FOs. The package has fallen behind a little the past few years and needs to be competitive again. Itís still probably one of the best short haul gigs in the U.K. with plenty of options on what you want your work life balance to be like.

I'm sorry but this information is totally inaccurate, the FO salary is £57K and SFO is £71K, with about 12K sector on top as a minimum. regards the upgrade - do mean from Fo to SFO or SFO to CPT? In which case neither are true and based on hours and completing the command upgrade program.

Yes there is, called "Willing to Fly" (although not without its controversies). Paid at 1% of yearly salary per duty day worked. Availability is obviously higher in the summer season and varies by seat/base/contract.

How does the easyJet salary for FO compare to Jet 2 for the Airbus?

Has EasyJet increased the salaries since the above to compete against the likes of Jet 2

Jet2 are significantly ahead for RHS salaries, and EZY are falling further behind most other competitors. At Easyjet, the justification that one could do pre COVID was that a fast time to command and a good LHS package once you got there would balance out this difference over your career. However the LHS package has now slipped behind competitors as well. Whilst EZY UK does have some nice 'lifestyle' concessions such as 5/4/5/3 and (BALPA negotiated) roster protections a great deal of RHS I know have left/are leaving or at the very least looking around at other available options. Add in to that a great many LHS are either part time or wanting to do so, most citing workload as the main reason. One thing worth noting that pay negotiation is ongoing with the company for both flight deck and cabin crew unions.

If they drag it out, arenít they going to have more leaving and eventually have issues with BALPA with a vote for industrial action.
