I'm looking at it too. I've been invited to take the Mollymawk Test so far. To be quite honest though, the package is awful. If Cargolux are going to get quality people into China, they're going to have to pay what the Chinese airlines are paying.

Zhengzhou is a crappy place, smogged very most of the time.
And the Cargolux China thing is far from going ahead.
I wouldn't put my bet on it realizing.

Cargolux China has stalled due to the immense bureaucracy and complexity of starting business in China.

Yes they are still going through the motions, but they've already being doung this with the DLR.

Not enough suitable pilots found already?

Nothing firm re TnCs, all smoke and mirrors.

My bet as stated 12 months ago, is it will never happen as perceived.

Ok, some update from inside. Project on hold due to regulations, CX was planning to hold 30% share but allowed only 20%, will come up with an investor for the missing ten.
Crews for the first five aircraft assessed, some of them (maybe only FOs) will fly in Luxemburg until things materialize.

If your info is really from the inside you should know that CX is Cathay Pacific
and not Cargolux.

2019 ?

Despite comments from our CEO that the Cargolux China project is put on ice, it seems that the responsible persons are still active in a way.

However since the shareholder problem is still unsolved they have not even applied for an AOC yet.

So my optimistic guess is 2019.

T&Cs are still nonexistent. There are far better gigs available nowadays for qualified captains.

Our own F/Os are also not too interested in potential CV China command upgrade opportunities.

September 2018 is the latest estimate to get going.

Don't get confused:

Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg
„Willy Brandt“
BER
