Does anyone know what the average salary of a station manager for an airline (w/ three widebody flights) at a large airport?

Wow....leaves alot out there.....

Big airport? "3" widebodies? What about 2 or 4? :P

Depends on geographical location (cost of living), airline (low paying low-cost or charter vs making money or legacy), responsibilities, number of people under them and experience.

You'd be suprised at the variance in salairies for station managers even within the same company, let alone for different airports and companies. With that said, there is no way to come up with a salary based on your criteria....being at all accurate anyway.

Most airlines are cheap. Or to put it better, they pay station managers on a whole, not as much as they did 10 years ago. The problem nowadays is such a huge proportion of station managers are mid twenties to mid thirties and wanted the job of "station manager" so bad, that they didn't really get around to negotiating salaries. This is the case wether you speak of a LCC or a legacy carrier. Express stations (UAX, NWX, DCI, ect.) all start at around $25k-$28k. Mesa starts around $23k-$25k even on the west coast. If you want to be a station manager, you are probably better off going into the contract business handling airlines as many airline jobs are being farmed out anymore, and contract companies pay better anyway.

This is the definitive truth. Doesn't hurt working for a few different airlines in a single day.  Wink

In Hong Kong, most of the airlines paying 25K - 60K HKD per month which is reasonable match with the living level here with this position.

Airlines paying different for station manager can say how they respects to this position and responsibilities.

It truly depends on the airline (major carrier vs. commuter) however I would take a guess it would be in the $60,000 based on the information you gave for a major airline.

I don't think you get paid more by working in the contract business, I think you get less. My former station manager at DGS probably made about $35,000 at most. Mainline would probably pay at least $60,000 to $80,000 at PIT anyway, maybe a hundred G's at a large station.

For an airline like ZW, if you have experience, you are probably looking $32-34k to start. That is the high end of the regional airlines. As has been pointed out you will get paid crap if you work for Mesa as a station manager.
