Emirates Conducts Open Days Across GCC, Pakistan, Beirut, Africa & Turkey to Recruit Cabin Crew

In July, the airline will hold walk-in interviews in over two dozen cities worldwide and will also conduct invite-only events.

Dubai’s Emirates Group recently announced a mammoth recruitment drive to hire pilots, cabin crew, IT professionals, engineers, and customer services staff. The group will hire hundreds of people to fill positions for unique roles at its two subsidiaries – Emirates Airline and airport services provider dnata.

The group has been aggressively hiring in the past two years, adding 17,160 people in various roles during the 2022-23 financial year alone, taking its total workforce to more than 102,000 by the end of March 31, 2023.

Dubai’s flagship carrier Emirates will receive delivery of the new fleet of Airbus A350s and Boeing 777-Xs starting in 2024, hence, requiring a young and dynamic cabin crew workforce to operate new aircraft.

As Dubai’s flagship carrier expedites recruitment, Emirates is organizing open days and invite-only events across six continents, covering hundreds of cities all year round, in search of the brightest talent. The recruitment process is designed to be completed within a day, and candidates are contacted within 48 hours of the assessment.

In July alone, the airline will hold walk-in interviews across more than two dozen cities in GCC cities, Pakistan, Africa, and Latin America.

Currently, the world’s largest international airline cabin crew community represents over 140 nationalities and speaks around 130 languages.

Interested candidates can walk into open days happening all over the world. They’re not required to submit their application before they attend.
