Hong Kong Airlines Recruiting New Cadet Pilots

Hong Kong Airlines is looking for young people with Hong Kong Permanent Resident status for its second round of cadet pilot recruitment, following the successful launch last year.

The 2017 programme received over 4,000 applications and Hong Kong Airlines is now looking to welcome new applicants with the recruitment phase running until 15 February 2018.

All new cadets will undergo 70 weeks of flight training, which includes ground school training and multi-crew cooperation training using medium jet simulator.

Following completion of the programme, successful cadets will receive their official appointment as Second Officers of Hong Kong Airlines.

Mr Tang King Shing, Vice Chairman of Hong Kong Airlines, said, "Hong Kong Airlines is currently undergoing a period of unprecedented growth and we continue to seek new talent every day. Our recruitment for new pilots has seen a double digit jump over the past two years and we are committed in our pursuit to help spur growth within the industry. By solidify Hong Kong's position as a world-class international aviation hub, we can provide our customers with more travel options and flexibility."

Having served a record seven million passengers in 2017, which represented an impressive 10% climb year-on-year, Hong Kong Airlines is witnessing passenger growth that exceeds the industry average of 7.5%.

To help cater to this growing demand, the airline is developing a new training centre. In addition, Hong Kong Airlines is also looking to expand its fleet to 50 aircraft strong by 2019, and is poised to take delivery of all 21 Airbus A350s by 2020.

 These improvements will prove pivotal to the airline as it continues to transition into a global carrier with long-haul aspirations that will include non-stop services to San Francisco, New York and London in 2018.
