You can go straight on to the A320 fleet at the moment. No B737s anymore, as mentioned above. You will need the right to live and work in New Zealand. Air NZ aren’t doing any sponsoring. You also need an NZ CAA license.

There is numerous hard working kiwi pilots doing the hard yards trying to get in to the national carrier. I wish you the best of luck with your permanent residency. However keep in mind that once you relinquish your command status and move to a new country and join a new airline, (assuming you get a job there) you start right down the bottom. No body will care that you used to be a 737 captain. In fact that may go against you when your resume is considered. So think it through. New Zealand is a wonderful place to live but you might have to bury your airline career.

Air New Zealand.

It helps to get the name right if you want to (not "wanna") work for a company.

captaincy in 5 years .... I know a couple of FOs that would hope you're right😊

8-10 years is more in line with their expectations ☹️

Pilots with seniority in the 700's (ish) are coming up for Commands around the 5-6 year mark. Mostly due to expansion and a large increase in manpower requirements on the A320... there's also been a relatively large amount of more senior A320 Captains leaving the fleet for Longhual. I highly doubt anyone joining today will see the LHS in the same amount of time, but I could be wrong.

Do 'shift' to NZ by all means but your seniority resets to 0 as soon as you come here, sorry.

Do you have the right to work in NZ and a NZ FCL?

Assuming you’re a Jetstar FO already in NZ, just ask the skippers you fly with, they all know the info pretty well from all the FO’s that have gone before you. One skipper in Auckland even runs sim sessions from his house, not sure on the quality of the ‘sim’ but several FO’s have used it before their interviews.
