- The Captain has authority over the entire crew and passengers. S/he takes all necessary decisions, from the preparation to the closure of the flight. His/her absolute priority is to ensure the safety and security of the flight. S/he takes responsibility for the assignment by delegation from the CEO. Becoming a Captain is an important step in a pilot's career and occurs after a long period of training in both the technical and managerial fields.
- The First Officer (or co-pilot) is second-in-command in the crew. The crew always consists of a Captain and at least one First Officer. During his/her career, the First Officer furthers his/her experience and knowledge of the airline, providing the chance to eventually become a Captain.
