That's for Japan. They've been looking for people for that constantly over the past year or two.

That'd be for the Japanese operation champ. To cover their growth.

Is it possible to move from JQ NZ on the A320 to JQ Australia on the A320?

No, two seniority lists. Aussies who have taken the JQ NZ job have found that out too late and usually move on. In the mean time Aussie EBA F/O's are being sent to NZ to fill in for the F/O's that they can't hold on to. All the while being paid Aus EBA wages and DTA. To say that JQ HR don't have a clue is an understatement. If you don't want to live in NZ then don't take the NZ position.

Just curious as to how many hours the Auckland based F/O's are doing a month?

Yes they need FO's in CHC at the moment, the current crop of Command Trainees have around the 4 year service mark. If the operation ever manages to get fully crewed then I would think you could at least double that.

Any updates on recruitment to Aus positions? Heard the sims are fairly well booked for the rest of the year. Do they still need people?

The word on the line is that there are ground schools running for the rest of the year and that another 100 pilots will be hired next year.

So it sounds like all the poor turboprop operators in Aus will continue to haemorrhage pilots for at least another year 😂

100?! That's a lot considering they have been hiring for a solid year already, I wonder what is in the pipeline at JQ then.

The Aus bases are all still flying big numbers per annum and about 15-20 FOs currently at Jetstar Pacific in the LHS. A significant number of crew are heading to QF as well

They are targeting Tiger Airbus drivers before they convert to the Boeing fleet.

You'll have to marry a Flight Attendant, ask at the interview, they may issue you 1 .
