What is the recruitment process for a Jetstar Hong Kong Pilot Position?

The selection process is competency based and involves a number of different stages including an interview and simulator assessment.

It is important to keep your Jetstar application on the website current to ensure we have the most up to date information available.

Can I re-apply with Jetstar if I have been unsuccessful?

Yes! Unsuccessful applicants can re-apply after a period of 12 twelve months from being told they are unsuccessful.
