Getting your PPL (Private Pilot’s Licence) is only the first step towards becoming an airline pilot. Once you have your PPL you will need to take the next step, which is getting your CPL (Commercial Pilots Licence). Many commercial pilots will then do their FIR (Flight Instructor Rating), which allows them to build up their flying hours while getting paid to do so. You will need these flying hours before taking the final step, which is getting your ATPL (Airline Transport Pilots Licence).
PPL is a Private Pilot’s License and is a qualification which allows you to act as Pilot in Command in an aeroplane [PPL(A)] or Helicopter [PPL(H)] without remuneration. It is the most common license held in general aviation and is the first step to all the other licenses that you mentioned in your question.
CPL is a Commercial Pilots License and allows you to act as Pilot in Command of a charter or corporate flight.
ATPL (or ATP Certificate) is an Airline Transport Pilots License and is the highest level of pilot certification. This will allow you to transport passengers commercially for an airline.
