A Hong Kong icon, Cathay Pacific has been a strong, award-winning, global brand for more than 70 years. The acquisition of Cathay Dragon in 2006 strengthened both our footprint and our reputation. Our two airlines never stop, and our teams keep our operations and our passengers ‘travelling well’ 24/7, 365 days of the year. To continue to strengthen our brand we have embarked upon the most exciting business transformation in our history. We are always looking for talented people and there has never been a more exciting time to join!
Who we are
We are the people behind Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon. We are proud of our Hong Kong heritage but equally proud of the global, diverse workforce that makes us who we are. We are relentlessly driven to create lifetime customer loyalty, value for our shareholders and satisfaction and enrichment for our employees. We are a complex global business, but we are also a family.
And whether we are in the cockpit or behind a desk, moving cargo, checking our passengers in or ensuring they are safe and comfortable while in the air, we are all one team, focused on delivering one world-class airline operation.
As a global business and one of the largest employers in Hong Kong, we not only value diversity, we believe it makes us a better business.
