British Airways (BA) pilots at risk of redundancy because of the impact of the coronavirus outbreak could soon be able to join the Royal Air Force (RAF) on secondment.

This could lead to a lifeline for BA pilots, who are part of plans to cut more than 12,000 jobs.

BA pilots who previously served in the armed forces and the rest who have no prior military experience could fill hundreds of vacancies in flying and ground-based roles, according to RAF officials.

An announcement from the British Airline Pilots’ Association (BALPA) said: “The RAF was very receptive to the idea and has indicated that there are a wide range of positions available in both flying and ground roles.”
