Air Hong Kong (AHK) currently operates 9 x A300F aircraft and 5 x A330F aircraft (3 x 330-300 P2F and 2 x A330-200F), all leased from DHL Aviation, serving the DHL Express Hong Kong (HK) hub network.
During normal times, a reliable roster that offers a great work/personal life balance.
The opportunity for pilots to work in a small airline with a people oriented culture, where pilots are highly respected, and their contributions are valued.
The opportunity for pilots to maintain their flying skills, and to continue a flying career with a successful airline in the current environment.
Pilots normally join as "First Officer 1" and will serve one year under probation. If the required standards are maintained, First Officer 1 ranked pilots will be promoted to the rank of First Officer 2 after a total of two years of service. Subject to satisfactory performance, promotion to Senior First Officer is usually after a total of three years of service. Progression between aircraft types operated by AHK, and selection for Command, are driven by operational requirements and assessed individual suitability, in seniority order subject to individual fleet manning needs.
The normal AHK operation to support the DHL Express network sees most flights departing the Hong Kong hub at 0300-0500 local time, and arriving at the outports 2-4 hours later. The aircraft remain at the outports during the day, and fly back to Hong Kong late evening, the crew resting at the outports in quality hotels. There are also some other day/evening local time flight patterns. During the current Covid-19 situation, we are operating a number of flights as turnarounds between HK and the destinations to minimise crew exposure and quarantine requirements.
Cargo is predominantly DHL Express freight; and AHK is highly focused on achieving on time performance. AHK also carries cargo for and operates dedicated flights on behalf of Cathay Pacific Cargo.
One of AHKs competitive advantages is a highly engaged team culture, especially amongst our pilot community. AHK pilots go above and beyond the call of duty to get the job done, safely and on time. AHK seeks pilots who have a can do attitude, and a positive outlook, who will be a good fit with our current agile, flexible, and proactive pilot workforce. AHK is proud of maintaining a diverse work place.
Safety performance data shows AHK maintains a high standard of flight operational safety. AHK expects our pilots to maintain a high standard of professional knowledge, prepare thoroughly for each flight, function effectively in a diverse team, operate according to our published procedures, and honestly report all hazards and incidents. In return AHK supports a non-punitive safety culture, and seeks only to learn from the windows into our operation provided by all incidents.
