Taipei, Cambodia Airways announced Friday that it will start recruiting Taiwanese flight attendants to provide service on a route it plans to open between Taiwan and Cambodia.
The airline, which was founded late last year, said in a statement that it expects to begin operations in the first half of this year and is planning to open a route between Cambodia and Taiwan, given strong two-way tourism and business demand.
Taiwanese candidates can be male or female but must be 19 years of age or above and have at least a high school degree. They should speak and write English fluently and meet the health requirements set by the International Civil Aviation Organization, it said.
Potential cabin crew must also be able to swim at least 25 meters on their own, must be able to reach 210 centimeters high while standing on their toes, and must not have tattoos, according to the airline.
Those interested can apply to register on the website of 104 job bank, and interviews will be held at the Westin Taipei hotel on Feb. 10 and Feb. 11.
The airline plans to introduce 20 Airbus A320 aircraft in the coming five years to serve markets in Southeast Asia as well as South Korea, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.
Comments Off on Taipei-Taiwan’s Tourism Bureau is promoting mountain tourism at the 4-day Taipei International Travel Fair that began Friday.
The bureau is focusing on five north-south mountain ranges — the Central Mountain, Xueshan, Yushan, Alishan and the Coastal Mountain ranges — in its pavilion at the fair, said bureau Deputy Director-General Chang Shi-chung (???).
Chang said there will be various exhibitions and forums on the mountains of Taiwan, as well as its unique cultural features such as historic trails and aboriginal lifestyles.
Taiwan is preparing to market 2020 as the Year of Mountain Tourism, after its efforts to position the country as an important international mountaineering destination in July, when the government allowed public access to the island’s national parks.
Previously, people who wanted to visit restricted “ecological protected areas” in Taiwan’s national parks had to apply for permits from both the National Police Agency and the Construction and Planning Agency.
Now, however, the Construction and Planning Agency has launched a new mountain permit application portal that requires mountain visitors to apply for only one permit and provides fast-track processing to expedite applications, the bureau said.
Much of Taiwan is covered by mountains, and it has 268 mountains of over 3,000 meters, according to the Tourism Bureau website.
That environment has made hiking and mountain climbing one of the favorite pastimes of Taiwan residents.
The number of permits issued to Taiwanese citizens and foreign nationals for access to trails in Yushan, Taroko and Shei Pa national parks has risen from 153,736 in 2016 to 187,053 in 2017 and 201,526 in 2018, according to Construction and Planning Agency figures.
In 2018, foreign nationals accounted for 7.24 percent of the permits issued.
There will be around 1,700 booths from 60 countries at the fair, to be held Nov. 8-11 at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center.
The fair, the largest of its kind in Taiwan, will feature South Korean and Japanese tourism operators amid growing local interest in travel to those countries.
