Emirates is embarking on a global cabin crew recruitment drive with plans to hire 5,000 new joiners.
The recruitment drive is designed primarily for those who will soon or have recently stepped into the world of work. The airline is inviting fresh graduates with internships or part-time jobs on their CVs, and those with hospitality or customer service experience.
In 2024, Emirates’ recruitment team will host open days and assessments in more than 460 cities across six continents, reflecting the span of the airline’s network and the diversity of its cabin crew team.
In 2023, Emirates hired 8,000 cabin crew and held recruitment events in 353 cities as the airline ramped up its services post the pandemic.
In August 2023, the airline’s cabin crew numbers crossed the 20,000 milestone and are now 21,500 strong.
The new cabin crew recruitment drive comes as Emirates begins to take delivery of its eagerly anticipated A350s from mid-year and the Boeing 777-Xs starting in 2025.
The airline has 65 A350s and a mix of 205 777-9s and 777-8s in its order book. The new aircraft will expand the airline’s reach and provide flexibility to add new routes to its network.
All new cabin crew recruits undergo eight weeks of training in delivering the highest standards of hospitality, safety and service.
