Work conditions


A300 Fleet rosters have until the 2020 situation have been reliable with steady blocks of days on/days off cycles. Each work cycle consisted of either one to two sectors each night, reserve duties, and recurrent simulator/ground training when due. Target monthly flying rate is 55 hours. During the current Covid-19 situation, longer flying patterns are in place. The nature of the normal AHK express cargo flying operation is such that changes to the commencement of duty cycles are rare.These cycles and targets are not contractual and may vary should the DHL Express operating plan change, however AHK aims to return after the Covid-19 situation to the principle of rostering predictable days on/days off cycles.

To support fatigue mitigation, AHK provides quality airport-convenient hotel accommodation from 11 hours prior to the commencement of the first duty event during each work pattern, through to the end of each pattern, regardless of type of duty.
