Chinese airlines recruit “foreign captains”: Minimum salary 1 million yuan (US$ 160,000)

Reporters learned from the official website of a Chinese airline where a recruitment offer was posted to hire Airbus A330 captain with annual salary of $ 204,000, and safety awards $ 6,000 per year with at least seven consecutive days off per month (normally 10 days).

While other Chinese airlines posted similar recruitment ads to attract foreign captions, basically the “starting salary” will be at least 1 million yuan (US$ 160,000). Behind the strong demand of foreign captions is the shortage of domestic mature pilots and the rapid development of the civil aviation industry in China.
