Cathay Pacific stages walk-in day to recruit cabin crew
16 Jan 2005
Cathay Pacific Airways today kicked off its 2005 recruitment drive with a Walk-in Day for flight attendants. Candidates interviewed for the opportunity to become a member of the cabin crew team that has helped to make Hong Kong's home airline an international leader.
Cathay Pacific has already announced that it will add 11 new aircraft to its fleet this year, creating 1,500 job opportunities – including 1,200 for cabin crew and 200 for ground staff – to support one of the airline’s fastest periods of growth in its almost 60-year history.
The airline is also adding new services and will launch a thrice-weekly flight to Xiamen from 28 February 2005, subject to approval, and operate a twice-daily service to Beijing later this year, strengthening connections between Hong Kong and the Mainland and Hong Kong’s position as a global hub.
Successful candidates will begin a 6-week training programme in April that will equip them with the knowledge and skills to deliver the standards of service for which the airline is renowned.
Cathay Pacific Manager Cabin Crew Shirley Au Yeung said: “Cathay Pacific creates a wide range of employment, training and career development opportunities, already employing more than 11,000 Hong Kong people. We are very encouraged by today’s turnout and expect to find some suitable candidates. But this is just the beginning. Our recruitment activities will continue throughout the year as we search for the right people to deliver our signature Service Straight From The Heart.”
Cathay Pacific recruited about 500 flight attendants in 2004.
