Cathay Pacific Airways was one of the key participants in today’s Youth Expo, offering 600 Flight Attendant vacancies along with 70 openings for Customer Service Officers based at Hong Kong International Airport. The airline’s counter at the expo was busy throughout the day, with a host of young job seekers finding out more about the vacancies and submitting applications.
The Youth Expo was organised by the Labour Department of the HKSAR Government and attracted many young people to the Queen Elizabeth Stadium in Wan Chai. At the Cathay Pacific counter, visitors were given insights into the job nature and requirements of the relevant openings. Many of those who brought the necessary documentation with them were able to submit applications on site.
Cathay Pacific is adding new frontline staff as it continues to expand its fleet and services. The airline recently added extra passenger services to Osaka, Sapporo and Taipei and on 1 July will launch a new daily non-stop service to New York, creating a double-daily service on the route. Cathay Pacific also plans to add more aircraft to its fleet in the near future.
Cathay Pacific Director Personnel William Chau said: “As Hong Kong’s airline we are committed to strengthen the territory’s position as a leading global aviation hub and to further develop our network out of Hong Kong. At the same time, we are pleased to be able to create more jobs locally and provide training for Hong Kong people.”
Cathay Pacific’s workforce currently numbers around 14,300 people, of which more than 11,000 are based in Hong Kong.
