BAA Training Prepares Future Pilots for Luxair, Luxembourg’s Premier Airline

BAA Training, a leading international aviation training provider, has partnered with Luxair, the flag carrier of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Under the signed agreement, Luxair will send independently selected pilots to be trained at BAA Training’s facilities in Lleida-Alguaire, Spain, through an ATPL Integrated program. Luxair will pre-finance this training on behalf of these students.

CEO Marijus Ravoitis of BAA Training emphasized, “This partnership arrives when the industry faces a critical shortage of pilots. Luxair’s initiative to pre-finance the training of its pilots is a direct and innovative response to this escalating need for skilled aviators. We are prepared to address this demand utilizing our know-how, the expanding training infrastructure, and resources in Spain.”

The candidates carefully shortlisted by the airline will be sent to BAA Training annually.

BAA Training’s primary flight base is at Lleida-Alguaire International Airport, where Luxair’s pilots will undergo training. Additional flight bases are scheduled for launch in the second half of 2024, with further openings in 2025 and 2026 across other parts of Europe. The company has recently placed an order for 48 Cessna 172 Skyhawk aircraft to augment its fleet.

BAA Training is part of the Avia Solutions Group family, the world’s largest ACMI (Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance, and Insurance) provider, with a fleet of 212 aircraft. The group also provides a range of aviation services, including MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul), pilot and crew training, ground handling, and various associated services. Supported by 12,00 highly skilled aviation professionals, the group operates worldwide.
