We're proud to be one of the world's leading airlines. Our reputation is built on a long track record of success, an ongoing commitment to our home Hong Kong, and on the delivery of customer service that’s straight from the heart. We're able to offer you unique opportunities to let your passion for travel and aviation fly.

How would you like to spend your vacation getting your hands on one of the youngest and most sophisticated air fleets in the world?

If you're an Engineering undergraduate who is enthusiastic about aviation and curious to learn what a career in aircraft engineering is all about, an internship with the World’s Best Airline* is an opportunity that you won't want to miss!

What you'll learn

Our eight-week internship programme offers you the chance to gain invaluable exposure to the aviation industry that can give you a competitive edge and help get your career off to a flying start.

With us you will get a taste of how the Engineering Department of a world-class airline carrier operates, as well as the chance to tour exciting aircraft and learn how aircraft flight systems work. Visits to our 24-hour Integrated Operations Centre and HAECO, our maintenance and repair organisation, will ensure that you gain a good understanding of what it takes to deliver safe, compliant and reliable aircraft.

During the programme, you will receive a series of briefings from Cathay Pacific engineers on a range of topics such as ground safety, maintenance control and support, reliability, and aircraft theory of flight and aircraft systems.

If you perform well during your internship and show us a passion for engineering and aviation, you'll be given direct entry to our selection process should you decide to apply for our two-year Graduate Engineer Programme once you complete your studies.

Who you'll learn from

Our programme will assign you to an engineering team, either from commercial & projects stream or operations stream, where experienced senior engineers will share their experience and knowledge and give you an up-close look at their daily life as part of the Cathay Pacific Engineering. You'll also have the opportunity to meet lots of passionate engineering students like yourself - some of whom may even become future colleagues.

To better fit with your vacation schedule, our 8-week internship programme has two intakes:
Winter Intake – late Dec 2015 to Feb 2016
Summer Intake – Jul 2016 to Aug 2016
