Airlines are one after the other offering high salaries to entice new recruits. Hot on the heals of a recruitment campaign by EVA Airways to fill 100 new ground staff roles, China Airlines last Friday announced, starting in June, it will begin hiring for 74 new cabin crew positions as its fleet of Airbus A350 aircraft come into service and the airline seeks to harmonize its global network of air routes. The advertised salary for the cabin crew role is a minimum of NT$65,000 per month and the company anticipates the newly-employed flight attendants will start working in October this year.

As regards benefits, China Airlines cabin crew enjoy 123 rest days per year, receive an additional US$5 for each hour of flight time and enjoy discounted airfares in addition to other perks that the airline says are the best in the industry.

China Airlines points out that last year the company took delivery of its tenth Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in addition to adding four Airbus A350 aircraft to its fleet. At the beginning of this year, the airline also took delivery of six Airbus A350s. China Airlines says that the new aircraft not only reduce the overall age its fleet, but they also allow the airline to expand its air routes and increase the number of flights. Furthermore, the airline will be able to operate completely new aircraft on its four main European routes to Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Vienna and Rome and operate direct flights without the need for a stopover.

The airline also plans to resume direct flights to London in the fourth quarter of this year to provide added convenience for travelers flying between Europe and Taiwan.
