Emirates To Hire At Least 6,000 In 6 Months

With travel restrictions being lifted, not only has Emirates Airlines restored 90 percent of its flight network, but is looking to hire more pilots, engineers, cabin crew, and ground staff.

In fact, it is going to hire at least 6,000 people over the next six months, to meet the unexpected recovery in demand for travel.

A month ago, the Airline had revealed its plans to hire 3,000 cabin crew and 500 ground service staff. Amidst Dubai’s economic recovery, it now requires about 700 more ground staff, 600 more trained and qualified pilots as well as 1,200 skilled technical workers, to be based in Dubai as well as other locations.

While Emirates is already serving and operating 90 percent of its pre-pandemic network, it hopes to return to pre-COVID-19 capacities by the middle of next year. Currently, it is making up for the lesser number of flights by increasing the frequency to fulfill the current pent-up demand.

Last week, Boeing had predicted that airlines in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), as well as the rest of the Middle East, will require 1,96,000 additional human resources in the next two decades. By 2040, airlines in the Middle East will need a minimum of 54,000 pilots, 91,000 cabin crew, and 51,000 technicians.

Additional hands will be required for smooth operations of the aircraft that will be added to the existing fleet in the times to come.
