Cathay Pacific Resumes Hiring Hong Kong-Based Pilots


For the first time in 18 months, Cathay Pacific on Tuesday began hiring pilots for its Hong Kong base. While much of Cathay’s fleet remains parked in long-term storage, the airline said it is in the process of future planning and is looking to bring in local talent who already have residency rights or citizenship.

Safeguarding position ahead of recovery

Cathay Pacific has been exceptionally hard hit by the pandemic. Not only has COVID decimated the airline’s profitable long-haul transfer hub activities, but Hong Kong’s strict entry and quarantine requirements have meant that in April this year, the airline was still operating only a tiny fraction of its pre-pandemic capacity. Furthermore, it carried 99% fewer passengers than the same month in 2019.

However, the administrative region’s flag carrier is perhaps discerning some hope on the horizon. As first reported by the South China Morning Post, the airline is now hiring Hong Kong-based pilots again for the first time in a year and a half.ADVERTISEMENT
