DUBAI – Dubai-based airline Emirates plans to recruit 6,000 staff in the next six months to support its global network.
Emirates said the recruitment rush is in response to a surge in demand for travel as Covid-19 restrictions eased worldwide.
The Dubai carrier has already restored 90 percent of its flight network, and said it will hire pilots, cabin crew, engineering specialists and ground staff.
“Our requirement for 6,000 additional operational staff signifies the quick recovery Dubai’s economy is witnessing and will lead to opportunities and other positive developments across various other businesses, including those in the cnsumer, travel and tourism sectors,” said Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Group.
Emirates is hiring 600 pilots and 1,200 technical crew based in Dubai and outstations.
Last month, Emirates launched a global campaign to hire 3,000 cabin crew and 500 airport services employees for its Dubai hub.
Emirates will now require an additional 700 ground staff in Dubai and across its network. Sheikh Ahmed said there were “positive signs” of economic recovery”.
“We are hopeful to be back to where we were pre-pandemic, from mid-2022,” he added. ICA/Expat Media
