As Aircraft Transition Project Manager you will manage projects related to the transition of the aircraft (End of Lease (EOL), Entry into service (EIS) and inter-Group aircraft transfers) as well major fleet program projects. You will ensure that each project is delivered on time, to the agreed specification and within budget.

Many colleagues worked from home at least a couple of days a week before the current situation, as looking after our colleague’s welfare is important to us.
