The first Australian cabin crew to join China Southern’s Australian services will take to the air on Sunday, July 1 as the Guangzhou-based carrier continues to expand into the Australasian market.
“Our aim is to improve communication and customer service for the growing number of English-speaking passengers on flights between Australia and Guangzhou,” said the airline’s Sydney-based Project Manager, Human Resources Development Australia, Jane Cen.
“Initially it will be one Aussie cabin crew member per flight from Sydney and our main hub in Guangzhou, rising to at least one in each Economy, Premium Economy, and Business and First class as new staff are recruited and trained.
“The 13 crew starting next week are very keen to get into the air full time and we are in the process of offering positions to a second group of recruits who have just completed the recruitment process jointly operated by China Southern Airlines and Melbourne-based Altara air services company.
“Our plan is to continue to recruit and train local cabin crew as long as passenger feedback indicates it improves their in-flight experience.”
Experienced international flight crew member Ms Cathy Chen has been appointed to the new position of Cabin Crew Manager in Sydney to manage day-to-day operations.
