Cathay Dragon endorses salary increase and new subsidy


Cathay Dragon reached agreement with the union that represents the airline on a key remuneration package in late March. Starting this month, cabin crew about 2,000 in total can expect a three per cent pay bump and an increase in flying allowance from HK$79.49/hour to HK$81.87/hour.

Employees below flight purser grade are now entitled to an allowance for their extraneous duties, for example cabin crew who are going to take the annual flight safety test or pregnant flight attendants who need to perform duties other than their core ones, can receive a HK$200 daily allowance.

The company also agreed to give away handbags for senior pursers and foldable handbags for all flight attendants.

Cathay Pacific's regional airline pledged to consider extending the retirement age from 45 to 60. The management team will set up a focus group and conduct interview with its entire cabin crew.

The Cathay Pacific group has recently announced an annual profit of HK$2.3 billion, after two years of losses. Last year, the cabin crew of Cathay Dragon received a one per cent salary increase.
