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!

Emirates Adds Second California Gateway

5 North American Gateways

One of the fastest growing airlines in the world is Emirates Airline, which is Emirates Airline

headquartered in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Thanks both to its central location and wealth, Emirates continues to grow despite the overall global aviation slowdown. New aircraft continue to enter the Emirates fleet and the airline is expanding while many of its competitors are contracting.

In North America, Emirates flies out of New York’s JFK Airport, Houston, Los Angeles, and Toronto. This October the airline will be opening a fifth North American gateway at San Francisco. Emirates will be the first airline to connect Dubai and San Francisco using its newest, technologically advanced Boeing 777-200LR on that route. The aircraft offers 266 seats in a three class configuration and will provide 10 tons of freight lift in both directions.

Covering Six Continents

At present, Emirates provides service to 99 cities in 62 countries scattered across the Mideast, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and North America. The airline serves one South American city, Sao Paulo.

North American Hiring

The question many visitors to this site have about Emirates isn’t whether they are hiring, but how to get hired. Though we’ve provided links on our Emirates information page to help people out, we thought you’d like to know that the airline occasionally holds hiring sessions in Canada and the United States.
