Pilot Lifestyle at Jet2.com

We recognise the importance of lifestyle to Pilots and how much of a difference even the small things can make. As well as the safe and efficient technical operation of our Aircraft, our Pilots play a vital role in the experience our customers have on board – that’s why we want you to have a stable, sustainable lifestyle and enjoy your flying!

Some of the key lifestyle elements our Pilots have are:
• Stable basing in one of our 10 UK Bases
• A transparent base transfer policy – we always aspire to enable a move to your base of choice as soon as operationally possible
• Mostly 2 sector days and home each night
• Fantastic, varied flying to over 70 destinations including large international hubs such as Paris and Barcelona, far flung Greek Islands as well as winter destinations such as Chambery and Innsbruck

Spotlight on... Pilot Healthcare benefits

Colleague health & wellbeing is vital to us – we’ve worked hard to ensure we provide a well-rounded set of benefits and resources for our Pilots.

We offer all our Pilots comprehensive Private Healthcare Coverage, available immediately on joining the business.

This includes a ‘Medical History Disregarded’ provision, meaning the policy is as inclusive as possible.

This benefit is closely linked to our provision of an industry leading Pilot Support Programme, put in place to support you in recognising, coping and overcoming any concern which may negatively affect your ability to fly.

We also provide access to dedicated Wellbeing resources to provide help across a range of potential issues, such as anxiety in the SIM or mindfulness and relaxation techniques.

Pilot Rosters

A Pilot’s roster is often the central focus of day-to-day life and has a huge impact on the quality of lifestyle. We’ve worked hard to ensure our Pilots can deliver a busy operational schedule whilst maintaining a sustainable roster.
