Foreign pilots

Hi there,

 

new here.

 

Just wondering does anyone have any information about southwest hiring non American citizen pilots? I can't seem to find anything online.  I am Irish based in London flying 737-800. Would have the hours requirements before applying 

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Dean.

Hello Dean.

 

Since this is a customer forum, I can only give my personal opinion.

 

I'd be surprised if SW would not consider a qualified foreign pilot that meets not only the requirements to pilot an aircraft, but also the requirements to work in the US.

 

 Here's information about the requirements. I believe information on how to apply is included in a link near the bottom of the page.

Good luck!

I have also the requirement and flying at the moment B777 but would like to know if there is any way on how to get a job and apply for this position

 

Would appreciate any inputs.
