Instantly recognizable all around the world, Emirates cabin crew is a vibrant group that comprises over 135 nationalities includes Bangladeshi that speaks over 55 languages.
The growth of the cabin crew team has been steadily increasing in line with the arrival of new aircraft, and new routes being added to the network. This year, Emirates expects to hire over 5,000 new cabin crew.
“Our cabin crew are our greatest brand ambassadors. They interact daily with our customers at 35,000 feet in the air, and also at major exhibitions and events around the world where Emirates has a presence” said, Terry Daily, Divisional Senior Vice President – Service Delivery, Emirates.
Emirates offers its crew diverse future prospects within a truly global company.
There are many opportunities for progression within the airline as well as being promoted through the cabin crew ranks. Many crew progress from Economy Class to Business Class in less than 18 months and others who stay on have become Pursers or cabin crew leaders on board in around five to six years.
Emirates’ cabin crew often come from other professions and have opportunities to move to other departments as well. From accountants, economists, medics, and musicians for example, Emirates’ cabin crew community brings together diverse skills and different perspectives to the company.
Cabin crew are offered an entire employment package, which includes free of charge high standard, shared accommodation in Dubai, free accommodation utilities such as water and electricity, free transport to/from work, free insurance, medical and dental cover, as well as exclusive discounts on shopping and leisure activities in Dubai.
