Safety is our number one priority. All new Cabin Crew members undergo an intensive 7-week training course at our Safety Training School at Cathay Pacific City in Hong Kong. The course begins with theoretical lessons followed by practical sessions in a cabin mockup that will familiarise you with our operational safety procedures.
