Emirates Announces Houston Open Day

Successful candidates will be based in Dubai

Emirates Airline, the world’s seventh-largest airline, will be holding an Open Day

in Houston on June 27th. Open Days are information sessions where prospective flight attendants can meet members of the airline’s Recruitment Team.

Emirates GroupDr. Bobbie Sullivan of Cabin Crew News

shared this information to Cabin Managers recently; thank you Bobbie for your head’s up!

Cabin Managers previously noted that Emirates

was adding San Francisco to their list of North American gateways. Emirates already flies out of Houston, providing non-stop service to Dubai. The airline held a pair of recruiting sessions in Canada earlier this month and we fully expected that some sort of US recruitment would also be arranged. It has and we’re happy to share the following information with you.

June 27th Open Day Details

Open Day commences at 9:00am sharp and interested applicants are required to present an updated resume together with a full length and a passport size photographs in business attire. The Open Day will take up a large part of the day, depending on the number of candidates.

If you are successful at this stage you will be required to attend a further selection day during the course of the week.

– Minimum age 21 years at the time of application.

- Minimum arm reach of 212cms (on tip toes), which enables you to reach emergency equipment on all aircraft types.

- Educated to at least high school standard.

- Fluency in written and spoken English (fluency in another language is an asset).

- Medically fit to meet aircrew requirements.

- You must be the sort of person who has the natural ability to provide excellent service within a team environment.

We realize that being based overseas isn’t for everyone and some might object to living in an area of the world where their personal rights are curtailed. Dubai is considered by many people to be one of the most open cities in the Muslim world, embracing some Western customs and accommodating many different cultures.

Spend some time on the Emirates website to familiarize yourself with the company and research the United Arab Emirates and Dubai to discover what that area of the world holds for you.

Finally, if you are planning to attend Open Day DO NOT ARRIVE LATE

or you will not gain admittance to the event!
