Are people applying for this job? Or has ANA figured out they need to improve the conditions to pre-covid or better to attract talent?

Someone posted the new terms for FO's a few replies back, Its 18k at end of 5 year contract atm, no idea about captain's since they are only recruiting FO's right now.

They do have a note stating "Incentive Bonus
Tentatively approved for FY2022 and FY2023
*Payment will be paid following fiscal year above"

Air Japan

Pre-covid one of the most senior and respected Captains at Air Japan was a former Malaysian Airlines pilot. Not sure if he has returned. Just FYI

May I ask which agency you went with?
Did you ask them why?

Sorry for the late reply. I got called to go there for an interview so I would appreciate any information and guidance possible. The call was very short just to go over the info I sent in the application, nothing else. Can anyone provide some guidance? Thank you

Waiting to hear back from the agency at this time but they seemed interested based on the last phone call.
Which one did you go with Sam10, Catacroker?

Who pre-approved? The agency or the airline directly? How are you preparing? What material will you use to prepare?

I'm also waiting to hear back from PARC (Ireland office) but they have been quiet for the past month after the last contact. I couldn't make the august screening they mentioned in their call and now September is looking out of the question as well.
Do you have an actual date to go Sam10?

In the meanwhile, I did notice that the terms have been modified in July compared to March. A Little more money and a confusing accommodation note. Accommodation

Hotel provided by AJX at commuting destination & outstations.

-or- 100,000 JPY. Accommodation Fee for local accommodations arranged by pilot. Restrictions apply.

Anyone knows exactly how this works?

What work visa do you need to work for a japanese airline? Is it even possible? I have Canadian/EU citizenship if it matters.

If they're hiring expats, they'll take care of that.

Its a commuting contract, you won't need a work visa except for training which is handled by the company. After it expires, they wont renew it and you will enter japan with a crew permit, it bypasses the need for visas but its more limiting. I believe it's 7 or 9 days maximum and you are limited to the area of your port of entry, so technically, if you arrive in Narita, you can't go on a trip to Kyoto.

Sam10 and Catacroker, you guys have any updates regarding your screenings? Best of luck!

Sadly no, other than what was already posted on this thread long ago by some people that had first hand experience.

The brokers state they will provide you interview guidance and simulator prep help, didn't you get anything from them either?

Out of interest, those who have been called for an interview can you please state your experience?
I saw one person had +6500hr, didn't mention aircraft types etc / jet?
