Air NZ Link

Good Morning Pilots Near & Far,

Does anyone happen to have any information on Air NZ Link conditions, i.e. salary for FO's ?

I have tried to find information online but it is all very old and nothing recent.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

You don't happen to work for Tiger do you? Looking to move onto a more professional outfit?

haha definitely no "Go Cat" here. Just looking to see if it's a financially viable move. Lifestyle is 100% better, still need to pay bills though !

Educated guess based on flight deck gossip would be mid $50's for a new FO at Nelson (Q300) and mid $60's at Mount Cook (ATR), base figures before any allowances.

Honestly, I've been away from the Link group for many years now, as have the guys I speak to but those figures should be in the ballpark.

As for working conditions, I believe the Link Pilots/Unions have been leaning on management to get better TOD pairings, reducing the amount of downtime and consecutive overnights. I gather they've had moderate success.

Thanks ElZilcho, I really appreciate your reply.

All I could find online was in the low $40K region but that seemed to be from a few years ago.

The Mid $50K and $60K estimates are they fairly recent estimates ?

Thanks again

Recent "ish". Generally speaking, the increments only go up 1-2% per year in the CEA unless there's a new type. Not sure if Cook got an increase for -600.

$40k sounds like it might have come from the now retired Eagle Air (B1900D) or perhaps a very old Air Nelson figure before things improved there.

-edit-

I believe newly hired FO's start on year 4 ish pay if they have an ATPL or passes in all ATPL subjects, so not sure if the above numbers are actually year "1".

Educated guess. Previous posts of yours say you're TR on the 73
Add 10k to ElZilcho's estimates...unless he was giving you figures in AUD

Yep that sound about right,mid 60ish for non ATPL mid 70k with ATPL for Cook. Bear in mind you’re on that salary until you reach the requisite years of service with an ATPL. Figures excluding allowances worth about 12-15k.
