China Airlines boasts a professional team of about 10,500 employees around the world in nearly 100 different job categories. They provide comprehensive services to our customers around the clock, all year round. Aside from pilots and cabin crew who you are quite familiar with, there are customer service personnel who serve our customers on a "one call for all" basis and repair and maintenance personnel who perform their duties with quality-oriented professionalism. In addition, there are lesser-known staff in charge of planning and providing reliable, convenient, and customer-centric quality services.
Air Crew Job
Air crew job categories include pilots and cabin crew. With regard to the career path of a pilot, it takes about 2 years of prior training to become a qualified first officer. From there, it takes about another 8 years and at least 4,200 hours of flight experience to be promoted to captain. After that, if you do a good job as a captain, the company may train you as a potential management officer, provided that you are interested in management jobs; if you are interested in training positions, the company may train you as an instructor pilot in charge of flight training courses. As for the career path of cabin crew, you can develop towards a front-line supervisor/cabin chief. If you are interested in ground crew jobs, you can develop towards ground crew management officer.
Repair and Maintenance Job Categories
The development of repair and maintenance personnel is built on the repair and maintenance experience at the basic level. We evaluate an employee's capability, specialty, and aspiration, and provide a comprehensive occupational development system, with grassroots repair and maintenance leader, specialized engineer, quality assurance and audit, and repair and maintenance management as the main career directions. During their careers, repair and maintenance personnel will be subject to internal job rotation and external assignment (station, supervision) and undergo complete on-the-job training so as to enhance their personal skills.
Ground Crew Job Categories
The career development of ground crew is built on specialized aviation experience. We evaluate an employee's capability, specialty, and aspiration, and provide comprehensive education and training courses in combination with departmental rotation experience. We encourage employees to embark on further education and learning. Ground crew can develop towards management posts. For example, a front-line supervisor can also assume a management role after gaining enough experience.
